About the Book
I wear a charm of Ganesh I bought in India in 2005 around my neck. I have a real affection for this elephant who was the son of the gods and is carried around on the back of a mouse. For me, Ganesh is the god of new beginnings and it gives me hope when I face challenges. I am always looking for Ganesh.
Photographs are from Delhi, Agra, Allahabad and Varanasi showing the people and rituals of the places.
I teach photography, web design for artists and artist book classes at Northern Kentucky University and have been a working artist for over 40 years. I began making blurb books the first day I got a notice that blurb existed. Since then I have made quite a few for myself, gotten friends and family to make books, and use blurb when teaching my courses in artist bookmaking and photography and whenever I teach study abroad classes. Blurb democratized bookmaking for the rest of us and for that I am grateful. Thank you Eileen.
