For the 37th issue of Spotlight, we’re taking a look at disruptive technologies that made history. These include innovations in the field of photography, coin-making, art and publishing that didn’t simply change the game, they threw out the rulebook and gave the players superpowers!

Each of these relics represents a seismic shift in the way that humans make not just art, but also memories. For this issue, we will delve into the Sarmaya archive of photography, rare books, coins and art to highlight some inventions that shook the world. With the click of a shutter, the strike of an anvil, the stroke of a brush.
