Click to preview Kolkata photo book

From end of November 2010 to mid-March 2011 I have been travelling in West-Bengal and Bangladesh.On this journey I have spend around 7 weeks in Calcutta - Kolkata as the capital of West-Bengal was renamed in 2001.
This book shows some of the photographs I took in this period and is as the subtitle says my personal look on this in my opinion "friendly city with a bad reputation".


About the Author

Urs Schweitzer
Born 1950 in Frankfurt / Main, Germany. Arts College ( Photography ) in Dortmund in the early 70`s. Since 2008 I am living in Berlin. I always liked to travel, first in Europe, then from 1984 on a lot of journeys with destination Asia, mainly the Indian Subkontinent ( India, Nepal, Tibet, Pakistan, Sri Lanka ). In 1994 I have been for 5 month in China. My last journey in winter ( 2010 / 2011 ) brought me again to India ( West-Bengal, Bihar ) and for the first time to Bangladesh. Two books "Kolkata - a very personal look on the capital of West-Bengal" and "Bangladesh - The Art of Rickshaw Painting" are a result of this trip and a 3rd one on the Buriganga river in Dhaka will follow within the next few month.
