Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery proudly presents an exhibition of rare vintage and contemporary photographic prints on India. Rich in culture, tradition and a generosity of spirit, these images illustrate a people and land so unique that the patterns of their environment seem to radiate throughout their beings. This show brings together a varied group of images from the late 19th century overview of Calcutta by Bourne and Shepard to the poignant images of the prostitutes of Falkland Road, in Bombay by Mary Ellen Mark.
