Having talked about Lala Deen Dayal I want to move on to a more contemporary photographer: Raghu Rai. He was born in 1942, and is a photographer and photojournalist since 1965. He joined The Statesman in 1966 and was awarded the Padamshree in 1971.
A photograph by him:
Some more photos featuring him:
