Vivan Sundaram has been one of India's premiere artists since the early 1960's. This monograph examines the intersection of autobiography and history. In his photography series Retake of Amrita, time and space are reinvented using intimate family photographs. Mr. Sundaram recombines two legendary figures (his aunt Amrita and her father Umrao) into fictitious, digitally manipulated settings. Sundaram's family members go through a time warp, appearing together despite the constraints of death and place.
