PIONEERING PHOTOGRAPHERS 1850-1900
in association with The British Library & SOAS
The first major exhibition in London of early photographs of India
11 October — 15 December 2001
In the 19th century, India was at the forefront of photographic development, and this exhibition includes a wide range of arresting images many of which have never been seen in public before.
The exhibition is drawn from two of the most important collections of Indian photography, the British Library's Oriental and India Office Collections and the Howard and Jane Ricketts Collection - and is sponsored by Royal & SunAlliance. This is the first major exhibition in London of Indian photography of this period.
