Singh as you may know revitalized the use of color in Indian photography. Given he spent so much time in India, one may mistakenly think that would be an easy task. Quite the contrary, because the country is so colorful, Singh had to be a superb craftsman at delineating color from subject yet make some statement about both at the same time in the same frame. Therein lies his genius. If you have seen his book on the ubiquitous Ambassador car you’ll know what I am talking about.
