Mitch Epstein: In India

Edited by Susan Bell and Ryan Spencer. Text by Mitch Epstein.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Mitch Epstein: In India'.

Indian scenes and subcultures from a decade of Epstein's family travels, from cabarets to Bollywood

Between 1978 and 1989, Mitch Epstein made eight trips to India and shot tens of thousands of photographs. He also made three films there with his Indian wife, director Mira Nair. The photographs in this book are the result of Epstein’s unusual dual vantage in an extraordinarily complicated culture: through his Indian family life and work, he was both an insider and outsider. Epstein was able to enter a wide swath of subcultures that included a striptease cabaret, the Royal Bombay Yacht Club, Bollywood movie sets, an old-time Punjabi wedding band and religious pilgrims both Muslim and Hindu. In India is the fruit of Epstein’s deep and extended experience of India, where separate worlds converged.
A pioneer of 1970s art photography, Mitch Epstein (born 1952) has photographed the landscape and psyche of America for half a century. His awards include the Prix Pictet, the Berlin Prize and a Guggenheim Fellowship, and he was recently inducted into the National Academy of Design. Numerous collections hold his work, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Tate Modern; in 2013, the Walker Art Center commissioned a theatrical rendition of his American Power series. Epstein has described the cultural and physical evolution of the United States from 1973 to 2021 in his Steidl books Family Business (2003), Recreation (2005), American Power (2011), New York Arbor (2013), Rocks and Clouds (2017), Sunshine Hotel (2019) and Property Rights (2021).

'Mitch Epstein: In India' is NEW from Steidl

Featured photographs, captioned “Café, Bombay, Maharashtra” (1983) and “Rekha, Bombay, Maharashtra” (1984) are reproduced from In India, the new release from Steidl collecting noted NYC photographer Mitch Epstein’s photographs made over eight trips to India 1978–1989—many of which were made while working with (and married to) filmmaker Mira Nair. “I was working in an extraordinarily complicated culture with the great privilege of a dual vantage,” Epstein writes. “Through my marriage and intimate family life, I gained an Indian perspective—never fully of course, but more than if I’d been a tourist. At the same time, because I was American, I was largely unencumbered by the complex and politically fraught codes of caste, class and religion that ruled most Indians’ lives.… It is impossible to encapsulate in a sentence or two what India taught me, but I can say that my life there gave me a humility I hadn’t learned as a white middle-class man born in postwar America. I learned it from photographing and meeting people throughout that vast country, but also from collaborating closely with the Indians participating in Mira’s films.… In India, I began crossing borders, entering lives and worlds I didn’t understand to make work about the resulting exchange.” Launching Tuesday, September 14 with a signing at Dashwood Books. continue to blog
