David’s first prolonged exploration of the Indian subcontinent was in 1958—59, when he taught at Allahabad University on a Fulbright grant. He returned in 1963—64 on a second Fulbright to teach at the University of Rajasthan, Jaipur. In the two decades that followed, David made several extended trips to India, Nepal and Bhutan, funded by grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts and the American Institute of Indian Studies. With the exception of some portraits of the author, all of the photographs on this site were taken by David.
