Book Project

Discovering Ganesh: A Photographic Journey Through the Indian Diaspora will be a 100+ page book on Ganesh produced to accompany the exhibition. The book will include photographs taken specifically for the exhibition, as well as images of Ganesh throughout India and the Indian Diaspora.

These images will convey the pervasiveness of Ganesh in both sacred and secular contexts, while capturing the beauty and brilliance and Ganesh, including the truly spectatular Ganesh Festival as celebrated annually in Mumbai and throughout India.

The book's introduction will include background information on Ganesh's place in the Hindu pantheon while providing a comprehensive description of the Ganesh Festival. Additional commentary will reveal a deeper understanding behind the prayers, songs and sacred symbols associated with this beloved God.
