Prints produced for Stuart Freedman’s ‘The Palaces of Memory’ book launch

18 August 2015
Newly published by award winning photographer and writer Stuart Freedman is ‘The Palaces of Memory’, a beautiful, limited edition, hardcover photobook published by Dewi Lewis. The book documents a journey into India through a national network of worker-owned cafés found in cities throughout the sub-continent published as a love letter and tribute to the Indian Coffee Houses.

Freedman visited more than thirty of the most significant and beautiful Coffee Houses throughout India.  Away from the stereotypes of poverty and exotica they act simultaneously as political and artistic salons as well as simple eating places and allowed Freedman to enter an ‘ordinary’ India, far removed but with a distant echo of the 'greasy spoon' cafes of London from Freedman's childhood.

Metro was delighted to work with Freedman producing C Type prints for the book launch which takes place in September.  Watch this space for details of how to win a signed copy of the book.

Freedman is based between London and New Delhi. A member of Panos Pictures, he has, over more than two decades, covered stories from Albania to Zambia and his work has featured internationally including in Life, Geo, Time, Der Spiegel, Newsweek, The Sunday Times Magazine, Paris Match, Smithsonian, Condé Nast Traveller. In his essay for the book he presents his experience of the coffee houses as well as providing a fascinating insight into their history.
