India: Pioneering Photographers

Sir Madan Singh, Maharajah of Kishangarh, ca. 1911

India: Pioneering Photographers 1850-1900 – an interesting on-line exhibition.

The exhibition reflects the major preoccupations and achievements of 19th-century Indian photography: the early amateurs who first introduced the medium; the documentation of India’s architectural and ethnic diversity; the achievements of commercial photographers such as Samuel Bourne; and Princely India. Other themes include natural history, panoramas, trade and the industrialisation of India, and the Durbars.
