Old Delhi - New York
In Old Delhi - New York Personal Views, C.S.H. Jhabvala brings his wholly original, personal vision to both cities - Delhi, with its crumbling stones preserved among the explosions of new technologies; New York, with yesterday's marvels of modernity trumped by today's bigger and more astonishing ones. He has the shrewd, sharp, critical and deeply affectionate eye of someone entirely familiar with both places through years of living in them. Combining to a superb degree the talents of an artist and an architect, he is as wittily disrespecful in his visual observation as in the accompanying text. This book is on many levels a uniquely delightful and historically valuable record of two wholly different cities - shown here to be complex and exciting, and each in its own way paradoxically beautiful.
About the Author
C.S.H. Jhabvala was for many years known in Delhi as a distinguised practising architect and the dean of the School of Architecture. Since his retirement, he divides his time between the two cities he knows best, Delhi and New York, recording their architecture and ambience in masterly pencil drawing and watercolours. His first book, Delhi: Stones and Streets, consisted of pencil drawings. This book shows Delhi in black and white and in colour; and being published for the first time is his work on New York, also in pencil and watercolour.
