I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to highlight the latest photo book by Debra Schoenberger on 30-something Travel. I had the opportunity to review her earlier book, "To Be a Child" on my writing blog and was blown away by the stunning photography. In "India", her latest book, she brings the same intimacy and style to readers and exposes us to one of the most colorful and intricate cultures in the world.
Title: INDIA | Author: Debra Schoenberger
Publication Date: January 3, 2017 | Publisher: Blurb
I have always been fascinated by the sheer beauty and diversity in Indian culture. "Sensory overload in a glance" is an apt description of a country that is always in movement. To be able to stand still in the middle of all that movement allows me to really "see" her people and absorb the flow of life from birth to death.
From learning how to make yellow ink from cow urine to watching funeral pyres burn in Varanasi, I realized that I would have to spend a lifetime here to grasp the immense value of her art, stunning architecture, fascinating food and love of all that is beautiful.

"My dad always carried a camera under the seat of his car and was constantly taking pictures. I think that his example, together with pouring over National Geographic magazines as a child fuelled my curiosity for the world around me.
I am a documentary photographer and street photography is my passion. Some of my images have been chosen by National Geographic as editor's favourites and are on display in the National Geographic museum in Washington, DC. I also have an off-kilter sense of humour so I'm always looking for the unusual.
