Ray and the Blind Painter : An Odyssey into the Inner Eye/photographs by Nemai Ghosh"This volume presents an album of sixty-six photographs of two contemporary artists--Satyajit Ray, the Oscar-winning filmmaker, and Binode Bihari Mukherjee, the legendary blind painter. The theme depicted in the photographs is the outcome of a documentary film, The Inner Eye, made in 1972 by Ray. As a student of Binode Bihari, Satyajit could reach the height of an extremely humane interpersonal relationship with someone endowed with identical artistic faculty. It is the portrayal of an unusual convergence of two highly sensitive minds and a remarkable documentation of the philosophical overtones of Indian culture." (jacket)
