Francesco d’Orazi Flavoni has made tryst with this fascinating community. He followed them up in the Rann of Kutch to capture their precious life situations and delightful forms and expression. Of hundred pictures, with which this book is adorned, there are several masterpieces which speak highly of Flavoni, the Artist. Flavoni’s genius for transposing visual impressions of a photographer into words and thoughts of a scholar is reflected best in the descriptions written with enormous artistic sensitivity.

Flavoni’s work ‘Rabari : a pastoral community of Kutch’ is unencumbered by ethnography. It serves as a valuable introduction to what we call at the IGNCA ‘Loka Parampara’, peoples tradition. As a picture book it is an art-work of very high quality, and as a descriptive material it is a new and fresh exposition of lifestyle, insightful and a pleasure to read.
