Summary:
The Bengali metropolis of Kolkata, which bore the name of Calcutta during its time as a British colony. The photographs, which Faigenbaum began taking in the spring of 2011, make tangible how a visitor can't help but be taken in completely by this overwhelming city. An interview with France Bhattacharya embeds the images in the Bengali culture. The historical profile of the chaotic metropolis and its close connection with the surrounding countryside are shown through the prism of figures from public life, rituals, and intimate landscapes.
