Looking back, Looking at LIFE

These black and white photographs done over the years for LIFE magazine, are a treasure of mood and heritage regarding the Indian Dancer. Like a portal into the past, we see perhaps an “exotification” of the Indian Dancer. But, at the very same time we see historical artefact, how true these are, is for our own subjective judgements, but here they are, in their time-bound avatar, presented for yet another Dance Story.
