BIO

Ami Vitale has received recognition for her work from World Press Photo, the NPPA, International Photos of the Year, and Photo District News, and the South Asian Journalists Association presented her with the Daniel Pearl Award for outstanding print reporting on South Asia.

Vitale's photographs have been published in major international magazines such as National Geographic, Adventure, Geo, Newsweek, Time, Smithsonian and Le Figaro, among others.

EXPERIENCE INDIA!

Experience India in all its complexity and promise with a thoughtful young journalist whose work in South Asia has earned her the Daniel Pearl Award for outstanding reporting. The product of living in India for five years, Vitale's photographs reveal a richly vibrant society full of contrasts: the world's largest functioning democracy which has weathered more than 50 years of internal and external conflict.

On the banks of the sacred river Ganges you'll visit the city of Varanasi, the holiest of cities for Hindus, and discover the enduring traditions of pilgrimage. Witness the ongoing struggles in Kashmir, the hotly contested mountainous region straddling India and Pakistan and one of the most surprisingly beautiful places on earth. Travel to the deserts of Rajasthan to experience the colorful spectacle of a camel fair. Enter the world of Kolkata's rickshaw drivers (featured in her April 2008National Geographic story, "The Last Rickshaw") to explore the tension between tradition and modern influences in India today.

Go behind the headlines with this keen observer to explore the remarkable diversity of religions, cultures, and landscapes in the home of one of the world's most ancient civilizations.
