Nitin - the book is beautiful!

The photo reproduction, the photos themselves, the stories, I love it!!! 

Jeffrey GettlemanThe New York Times


What immediately strikes one in these gorgeous pictures is how Nitin has gained his subjects’ trust, making the portraits in this book honest, fascinating, and immensely likeable. For many years, Nitin has wandered India with his camera, recording sympathetic and philosophical interviews with people he comes across in all their variety. To these video interviews is now added this lovely book of portraits, a visual diary of Nitin’s wanderings. To enter the book is to travel with him.
