When Bill Barnett was in India the phrase “It’s a different world.” kept rattling around in his head. Many of you are probably thinking “different” in a negative sense. There are negative aspects of India. But, when you look beyond the problems India is a wonderful country to visit, particularly for a photographer. There is visual stimulation everywhere: women in their colorful saris, temples, festivals, performances, historical buildings, and so much more. During this program, we will: visit cities large and small; study the religions of India’s people; look at ancient archeological sites; attend several fairs; and visit with the people. Bill captured more than 10,000 photographs and video clips during two trips to India and selected about 300 for the show. These were blended with live narration, music, and local sounds to bring a visit to this wonderful country to life.
$10 for members and $15 for non-members.
