John Burke and William Baker were the photographers of the Great Game, men whose work inspired Rudyard Kipling. No Raj photographers witnessed more wars, discoveries, news events and human diversity than did these two Irishmen. Among the earliest photographers of Kashmir and Afghanistan, their work dominated commercial photography in Punjab and the North-West Frontier from 1860 to 1900. Until now, no one has been able to piece together their remarkable careers. From illegtimate children to platinum prints, this book unravels the evidence to locate Burke and Baker in the fabric of their times. A decade of research across Pakistan and in Western archives has led to one of the most complete portraits of the Raj photographers. The Burke and Baker story tells of the rise of photography and Himalayan hill-stations like Murree -- perched on the border of Kashmir -- where they had their main studio. Kashmir is where Burke, Baker and most Raj photographers shot their best photographs for hotly contested competitions across India. Printed Pages: 208 with numerous illustrations.
