Raghubir Singh
 
Indian born Raghubir Singh (1942-99) lived and worked in London, Paris and New York. A pioneer of the use of colour in photojournalism, he is particularly known for his images of his country of birth, emphatic colour images that show India as dramatic and exotic, but are never simply sentimental or touristic. When Singh was 24 he met Henri Cartier-Bresson who was then photographing India, and the master of photojournalism became very much a model for his own photography.
Despite this, Singh chose to work in colour,feeling that this was at the very heart of his view of India.
