At the turn of the millennium, photography is ubiquitous and unquestioned. A century-and-a half ago however, notes curator and scholar Vidya Dehejia, "the simple ability to produce a photograph was in itself a marvel. . . .The early decades of the nineteenth century witnessed the pursuit of a dream, an obsession with cajoling nature into a miraculous reflection upon a surface where it could be captured and retained for all time." India was at the vanguard of the explosion of photography; both Indian and foreigner (mainly British) strove to document and reveal the Indian landscape, people, and architecture. The essays in this book reveal the history and importance of photography in India, from the appeal of the panorama to the documentation of people, places, and princes-and to the outstanding Indian photographer, Lala Deen Dayal, who was unique in being esteemed by both the world of the British and the world of princely India. This book appeals to specialists and nonspecialists alike all those who love early photography or British India are bound to enjoy India through the Lens. Vidya Dehejia, curator of the exhibition, editor of and contributor to the book, is deputy director and chief curator of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and the Freer Gallery of Art. Contributors: Charles Allen, an author and broadcaster best known for his social histories of the British colonial era; John Falconer, curator of photographs, Oriental and India Office Collections, British Library; Michael Gray, curator at the National Trust, Fox Talbot Museum, Lacock, England, and scientific director of Ikons Centre Imaging Project, University of Pordenone, Italy; David Harris, independent curator and photographic historian specializing in nineteenth-century and contemporary architectural and landscape photography; Jane Ricketts, independent scholar and collector who has concentrated on the work of British photographers in India in the nineteenth century; and Gary Sampson, associate professor of art history at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Printed Pages: 320 with 220 b/w photographs reproduced as 4-colour from Sepia prints in 200 screen, bibliography, glossary.
