Saint Teresa of Calcutta: A Celebration of Her Life & Legacy by Raghu Rai-a book review

Saint Teresa of Calcutta: A Celebration of Her Life & Legacy –by eminent photographer Raghu Rai is a collection of photographs and his memoirs of the Mother Teresa. The photographer first met Mother way back in 70’s when he was doing a feature story on behalf of Junior Statesman and after that his association with the iconic figure and her Organisation continued. He took numerous brilliant photographs of Mother covering a wide range of subjects.
The book is divided into three board categories- the first category covers photographs of the Canonization of Mother in Vatican City, the second category comprises picture of the city of Joy and its dwellers, mother’s work among the poorest of the poor and Mothers and her sisters in prayer. In my view-there are some of the brilliant photographs I have ever seen. Some of the pictures are already famed and the others are unpublished. But every picture has a story to tell- story of love and dependency.
Well written memoirs complete the collection. Written in an eloquent way-the famed photographer touched aura of the holy figure. There is a well researched chronology of Mother’s life that completes the pictorial biography.
The printing, binding and paper quality used are truly of international standard- which makes it an invaluable collection for general collector as well as who are passionate about photography.
