Some German Views -- by Till Westermayer
These pictures were taken in October, 2000 by Till Westermayer, while visiting Delhi, Agra and Varanasi with an exchange project of the Institute for Sociology, Albert-Ludwigs-University, Freiburg. If one thing is true about India, it's the perception of the big differences inside the subcontinental state. These big differences between rich and poor, western and eastern, etc. mark the endpoints of a large range of Indian realities. Twenty pictures can only show a small range. So these pictures represent some of my personal experiences with northern India, but nothing else. Fell free to comment on the pictures (just send an e-mail).
