Reverie and Reality: Nineteenth-Century Photographs of India from the Ehrenfeld Collection
Reverie and Reality: Nineteenth-Century Photographs of India from the Ehrenfeld Collection
Since its invention in the 1840s, photography has been used to record images of exotic locales. At the time, these photographs provided a glimpse of the world to a curious public, few of whom could ever hope to visit those places. In Reality and Reverie, a visual history of 19th-century India unfolds in an exhibition of 112 vintage photographs, including images by some of the earliest and most significant practitioners of the medium: Linnaeus Tripe, Samuel Bourne, John Murray, and Lala Deen Dayal. The subject matter encompasses famous architectural monuments and natural landscapes; daily life in villages and sumptuous, formal visits of foreign royalty; and exotic lion hunts and elephants.
