About the Book
Paris-Calcutta, Images In Harmony captures the essence of two enigmatic cities in fifty pairs of matched photographs that harmonize with each other.
In this coffee table photo book, Shyamal Roy attempts to juxtapose the souls of Paris and Calcutta to express similarities and stimulations that have inspired many of the greatest artists on the planet. This book represents five years worth of intense photography in the City of Lights and the City of “inner” Joy.
