Pablo Bartholomew, a leading photojournalist based in India was commissioned by the Asian Cultural Council to document the Indian Emigre. While the photographs are beautifully crafted, it’s unusual to find a photojournalist conducing an interview with his subjects and publishing it. The interviews with Mr. and Mrs. Ohri on pages 4 and 5 are a must-read. It reminded me of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, a collaborative book by the writer James Agee and the Depression-era documentarian Walker Evans. Goes to show that photojournalists can be both photographers and journalists. Thanks Pablo for leading by example.
