Visualizing Indian Women: 1875-1947
Visualizing Indian Women: 1875-1947
Description

From the Jacket :

Photography as a medium has captured the diverse realities of women's lives over the last century and a half, providing a more holistic understanding of what is learned through the written word, memory, and recall. Visualizing Indian Women is a collection of 300 such rare photographs depicting women's lives during the period 1875 - 1947, gleaned from archives as well as private collections.

Based on a traveling exhibition curated by the Centre for Women's Development Studies, New Delhi, the book consists of images and explanatory captions that are divided into five sections, following a more or less chronological development of Indian women during this period.

'Visualizing the Family' showcases family photographs that focus on the changing role of women, the emergence of the urban nuclear family, domestic rituals, and home performances.

Pioneers in educational reform and the experiences of women in schools and colleges are looked at in 'The Learning Experience'.

'Worlds Beyond' has visuals of women as agricultural labourers and factory workers, the beginnings of women's emancipation as they moved into professions, the creative arts and politics - possible only with enhanced physical mobility.

The process of women's evolution as active political beings in a critical phase of the nation's history are documented in 'The Freedom Struggle'.

'Towards the Midnight Hour' captures a sense of challenge and commitment by highlighting the emergence of women as professionals and their experiences through the Bengal famine, Quit India movement, Partition, and the Second World War.

With a comprehensive, lucidly written introduction that places the photographs in context, this volume will be of great interest to general readers, students and scholars of gender studies, history, sociology, culture and media studies; photographers, photo-journalists, archivists, and art historians.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
