Mapping an ironic and poetic visual journey through Indian cities, I Love My India confounds our sense of the real with the often surreal forms of our social arrangements. Combining the eye of an ironic insider with that of a curious traveler, this is a witty and original account of street life, kitsch and popular culture. It invites a reading of the city through its signs, spaces, graffiti and dwellings. An unusual book that romances the pert idioms of Indian urban pop and street culture into a new definition of the global.
"Triggered by the interaction between urban Indian pop culture and the one generated by ever-growing cyberspace, the sensitivity of a young visionary begins to speak out."-Andrea Anastasio, Ex-Memphis and Artemide, Italy
