The fantastic photographs by JEAN-LOUIS NOU are back at akg-images: Nou spent 15 years on the subcontinent and looked at art history from the perspective of a sociologist. A piece of contemporary history is preserved with the archive of the GANDHISERVE FOUNDATION. More than 6,000 photographs of Mahatma Gandhi's life and work are available, many of them newly colored. BRUNO PÉROUSSE takes us to Kumartuli, the pottery district of Kolkata, where the statues of the gods for religious festivals are traditionally made.
