An exquisite book that creates a revealing and intimate picture of Kashmir

A chronicle of more than five years of travel and quiet observation, these images capture the lives sometimes flourishing, occasionally stilled that endure in the face of uncertainty and violence that have become synonymous with the Valley. Soldiers march in the spring tulip gardens of Srinagar; boys jump into the Nagin Lake to cool off; the afternoon sun entangles shadows on loops of razor-wire barricades, in the middle of a street; and the biting Baramulla winter cloaks a dismembered doll with snow.

Author Bio: In the last two decades, Amit Mehras photographs have been regularly published in Der Spiegel, Cond Nast Traveler, Architectural Digest, Gallerie, the Financial Times and National Geographic.
