It looks at the roots and themes of Indian craft and design from village society to Moghul palaces, and shows how these traditional forms are reinvigorated in contemporary arts. Herbert Ypma, together with a team of photographers, traveled across India to bring together an array of images of buildings, textiles and ceramics. Together with text, these images provide an insight into the emergence of an aesthetic that truly combines the old with the new.
