This stunning photo essay by award-winning photojournalist Steve Raymer chronicles the everyday lives and special occasions of people of Indian origin now living throughout the world. Images of a Journey documents the struggle of Indian immigrants, beginning in the 19th century with the British Empire's need for cheap labor and ending in Bangalore, the high-technology capital of a resurgent India. Raymer takes readers to the sugar plantations of Trinidad and the hardscrabble neighborhoods of England, as well as inside some of the top hospitals and Fortune 500 companies in the United States. His photographs put a human face on the diaspora by introducing us to doctors, scholars, business executives, artists, journalists, and ordinary people of many backgrounds who have changed the way the world sees India.
