Manuel Rivera-Ortiz SIGNED COPY: India A Celebration of Life

India. A Celebration of Life is the culmination of nearly a decade of visits to the Indian subcontinent by Manuel Rivera-Ortiz. This collection pulls together 120 photographs of the people and places of this incredible nation of polar opposites from Rajasthan to Kolkata, Mumbai to Kutch. Men, women, and children, mostly living on the fringes of Indian society, are represented here. But India. A Celebration of Life is more about hope than it is about despair. Manuel Rivera-Ortiz (b. 1968) is a documentary photographer and writer born relatively poor in Southern Puerto Rico. His work follows the tradition of "concerned photography." He photographs in less developed corners of the world recording the dignity of the people who still live disadvantaged in situations of poverty. Rivera-Ortiz's work reflects the horrors of the life he himself witnessed growing up on dirt floors and in corrugated tin shanties. In 2009, with the help of friends, he founded The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for Documentary Photography & Film. Rivera-Ortiz's photographs are held in museum and corporate collections, including George Eastman House in Rochester, and The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.
