DESCRIPTION
Aicon Gallery is pleased to present Timeless India | 19th century photography of India, the first 19th century photography exhibition at Aicon Gallery that delineates how the camera shaped colonial India. These photographs mark the arrival of the photography in India and entail the early phases of photography in India in the 19th century. The period between 1840-1911, was considered the "golden age" of photography of India, where the "professional' reigned supreme, and the field was dominated by a few individual masters such as Captain Linnaeus Tripe. These photographers focused on documenting and archiving everyday imageries of the natives', the landmarks and monuments, and many scenic pastoral landscapes and heritage sites that quickly became the immediate subjects for such photographers and explorers. This exhibition features early documentations by photographers Captain Linnaeus Tripe, Baron Alexis De La Grange, Dr. John Murray and two unknown photographers.
