Description for Behind The Indian Veil - A Journey Through Weddings in India
Behind The Indian Veil chronicles award-winning photographer Sephi Bergerson’s extraordinary journey through uncharted wedding traditions in India. It reveals the differences and similarities in Indian wedding traditions, while seeking the common essence of this grand, colourful, fantastic celebration. After living in India for more than 13 years, with almost seven of which spent working on this project, Sephi has arguably experienced, witnessed and documented a greater variety of Indian weddings than any other person on earth. As he traveled the length and breadth of India, he was invited into sacred places and intimate moments normally inaccessible to outsiders, witnessing traditions buried so deep in the subconscious of the subcontinent that even people from India dont necessarily know about them. This incredible array of stories he was able to capture reveals cultures, traditions, and legacies as complex and diverse as India herself. Behind The Indian Veil features images and written stories from a vast assortment of Indian communities: Tamil Brahmin, Bengali, Sikh, Hindu Punjabi, Hyderabadi Muslim, Rajput, Kashmiri Pandit, Ladakhi Buddhist, Goan Catholic, Syrian Christian, Zoroastrian Parsi, Dawoodi Bhora, and Kodava Coorg.

For the first time I saw Indian weddings from a different perspective. His pictures talk to you, sometimes even scream at you too. You have to spend good amount of time at each one as there is a story unfolding. Watch it again. And again. And if you have a good eye, you will end up understanding the whole story.
This book is for an inspiration. Must read for everyone. Whether you are a bride, father of a bride, a photographer, a collector or whoever. You must must have it.
Oh, and don't buy the kindle edition. That's gross injustice as it will end up being on your smartphones or other portable devices where you might forget about it.
Get the print copy. It speaks better. Look at it everyday.
And the beautifully designed book adds great value to your coffee table. Just like mine now. And I know all my friends will look at it and try to understand what really happens at an Indian Wedding.
So go, buy it right away!!!
Sephi Bergerson once again shows that a beautiful picture is made when you give your heart and soul to the story, backdrops are just immaterial. Simple yet magnificent, vibrant yet classy, 'Behind the Indian Veil' takes you on a journey of rediscovering Indian weddings. A must have book for a newbie and a professional alike.
Thank you Sephi Bergerson for inspiring me, once again.
