In keeping with the international origins of photography in the Subcontinent, this book looks beyond national boundaries. As the introduction explains: “…in a world pervaded by the forces of globalisation, it is no longer possible to understand the photographic medium through conventional lenses such as nationality and geography.” The result is hugely successful, revealing through magnificent imagery the global connections and counterpoints across the last 180 years.
Each of the ten chapters in Photography in India identifies themes that run roughly concurrent to the history of the country, providing an erudite introduction and a detailed caption for each image.
