The Bin Diaries : India

The Bin Diaries : India

Description

Slam begins his second documented mission in Mumbai in rainy season. Unaclimatized immersal in the hot, humid condition makes for an uncomfortable start to a voyage to a vast sub-continent on the pretext of cataloguing its waste disposal facilities. Bins are less plentiful than maybe expected from such populous country, poverty forcing many to discard their waste on the street and often live in it but, unperturbed, Slam photographs what there is for posterity. The often unsuccessful search for habitable accommodation and palatable food and the toll taken by excessive intake of alcohol and other toxins leaves the author fighting fatigue, sickness and psychosis on a daily basis. Travelling via train, plane, bus, jeep and rickshaw, through Delhi, Amritsar, Jodhpur and Jaipur, witnessing incredible natural and manmade beauty, squalor and social inequality and the apparent brewing of civil war in Kashmir, ?The Bin Diaries, India? documents the Indian people, places and culture from a unique perspective.
