Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Divided into thematic sections, this volume takes a look at individual genres of photography in India. These include city panoramas, documentary records of architectural monuments and native peoples of India, images of war, landscapes, portraits of the Maharajas, images of the British empire and native Indian photographers, focusing in particular on the remarkable Lala Deen Dayal. While the approach intertwines roles of photography and colonialism, the deciding factor in the choice of images is aesthetic quality.
