Moods of a master

Satyajit Ray, known to his intimates as Manik-da, remains India's most respected name in international film circles. This book reveals the ease and camaraderie between Satyajit Ray and Nemai Ghosh, photographer extraordinaire. Their partnership spanned over a quarter of a century during which Ghosh was able to photograph Ray at work and play, capturing the many moods of the master director. Manik-da is the latter's endeavour to depict the man behind the director's mask. This nuanced translation from the Bengali original, including a foreword by Sharmila Tagore, presents Ghosh's thoughts on Ray with over 50 never-before-seen photographs.
