World Photography Day 2023


World Photography Day 2023 - 19th Century Photography, featured, Saturdays at Sarmaya

On 19 August 2023, on World Photography Day, we opened our archive to a group of photography enthusiasts to explore the journey of early photography in India.

This session of Saturdays at Sarmaya showcased an intriguing range of works, including colonial ethnographic projects like People of India, Felice Beato's documentation of the 1857 revolt, and the photos of pioneers like Samuel Bourne and Lala Deen Dayal. It was an interactive session, covering a diverse range of techniques that offered a fascinating glimpse into the rich history of photography in the region.
