Description: Santa Fe: Radius Books, 2010. 24cm., hardcover, 231pp. illus., several in color. Exhibition held at Peabody Essex, Boston. Publisher's summary : Dayanita Singh's House of Love is a work of photographic fiction that takes the form of 13 short stories. The "House of Love" itself is the Taj Mahal, but the Taj Mahal as a recurring motif that stands for the truths and lies of night and day, love and illusion, attachment and detachment, humor and treachery. Through images of her native India, Singh creates her own mysterious and ineffable, strange yet familiar language, using her trademark black-and-white photography and her newer investigations of nocturnal color. Working closely with writer Aveek Sen, whose prose pursues its own parallel journey, Singh explores the relationship between photography and writing.
