Publisher's description: The Artful Life of R. Vijay explores the unique collaboration between an American photographer and an Indian artist with an approach that is unique in itself. Though the American, Waswo X. Waswo, is the conceptualizer of this captivating series, it is the miniaturist, R. Vijay, from whose perspective this book is written. Art historian Annapurna Garimella brings her passion for vernacular Indian art to scrutinize and unfold the complex terrain a traditional Indian painter has needed to navigate while entering a foreign and contemporary mindset. The worlds of R. Vijay and Waswo meet in this volume, as they do in the miniatures themselves, with a mixture of harmony and incongruity.
