Photo's of the Gods The Printed Image and Political Struggle




India,moderne fotografie

PINNEY,C., Photo's of the Gods The Printed Image and Political Struggle in India, Londen 2004. Softcover 19 x 25 cm. 238 pag. met 167 afb. waarvan 80 in kleur. 
"Photos of the Gods' is the first comprehensive history of posters, postcards and other printed images that comprise a major dimension of India's popular visual culture. It traces the connections between the production and consumption of these images and the struggle against colonial rule. The detailed output of individual presses and artists over the decades is set against the intensification of the nationalist struggle and the constraints imposed by colonial state censorship, and a half-century of Indian independence since 1947. By combining anthropology, political and cultural history and the study of aesthetic systems, and by including many intriguing and unfamiliar images, 'Photos of the Gods' shows that India's current predicament and popular culture cannot be understood without taking into account this complex and fascinating visual history. The emergence of Indian-run chromolithograph presses in the late 1870s initiated a vast outpouring of images of an astonishin variety, an outpouring that today has come to dominate many of India's spaces, both public and domestic. Many interviews with both artists and publishers were undertaken for this book. Among the great variety of artists responsible for the almost bewildering, yet totally compelling, panoply of'photos of the gods' in India are those that trained in the colonial art schools, others whose skills reflect their membership of traditional painting castes, and yet others who began their careers as humble self-taught sign painters. These artists and the presses together helped make rather than merely reflect the politics of their day, hence 'Photos of the Gods' is not a history of the art of chromolithography but reveals how popular visual culture contributed to history in the making in India."

CODELL, J.F.(ed.), Power and Resistance. The Delhi Coronation Durbars, India 2012(978-1-935677-10-9). Hard cover 27,5 x 24 cm. 248 pages with 147 photographs.
 "This volume explores how photography represented, idealized and publicized the Delhi Coronation Durbars, occasions marking the formal coronations of English monarchs as empress and emperors of India: Victoria in 1877, Edward VII in 1903 and George V in 1911. Formally schematized and instituted by the Viceroys of India-Lytton, Curzon and Hardinge-the durbars were the first examples of the aestheticisation of imperial politics and the inscription of the Raj in a celebratory history that served to legitimate colonial presence.The book focuses on photographs made for those who attended the Delhi Durbars and for a global audience who did not attend. The essays in this volume focus on semiotics of image and the role of durbar photographs in visually rendering the 
complexities of colonial logic, the scopic regimes of surveillance and spectacle, and the pivotal ideologies and hyperbolic fantasies of a subjugated 'Orient' promoted by the imperial administrations to justify British rule in India. Published in association with the Alkazi Foundation for the Arts."

HUTTON, D. & DEEPALI DEWAN, RAJA DEEN LAYAL. Artist-Photographer in 19th-Century India, India 2013(978-1-935677-36-9). hard cover 27,5 x 24 cm. 256 pages with 145 photographs. 
"The pathbreaking and prolific lensman Lala Deen Dayal (1884–1910), began his photographic career in the late 1860s. Trained as a draughtsman in the British colonial administration, he was originally involved in photographic documentation of territorial survey projects and similarly of the ‘natives’. In 1885, he was appointed court photographer to Mahboob Ali Khan, the sixth Nizam of Hyderabad, one of the wealthiest men in the world. This volume presents the work of this pioneering photographer. As the only court photographer in South Asian history, Deen Dayal is a link between an older tradition of court painters and the evolving scientific aesthetic of the new medium. Throughout his career he skilfully served both the colonial regime and the Indian elite. The Deen Dayal studios in Bombay, Indore and Secunderabad took thousands of photographs of superb quality, creating a unique archive. The Alkazi Collection of Photography holds a sizeable portion of this archive, many photographs from which richly illustrate this book.Published in association with The Alkazi Collection of Photography."

“One of the world´s most important collections of historical portrait photography from India is on show for the first time. The collection was originally thought to be partially lost in World War II, only returning to Berlin´s National Museums in the 1990s. Around 250 images offer a comprehensive overview of portrait photography from the Indian subcontinent in the second half of the 19th century. Popular and unexpectedly diverse ethnographic photography of the time stands in contrast to street shots of artisans, as well as portraits of nobility, including Islamic princes and princesses, maharajas and clean leaders.

The coming of photography in India




India, oude fotografie

PINNEY,C., The coming of photography in India, Londen 2008. Hardcover 18 x 25 cm. 166 pag. met 120 foto's.

CONTENT:
Though photography reaches as far back as the sixteenth-century's camera obscura projects, it wasn't until the British colonial period that amateur photographers introduced their technology to the Indian subcontinent. By the end of the nineteenth century, however, India was at the centre of a representational revolution.
Was photography in India simply a void, waiting to be filled by pre-existing cultural and historical practice? Or was it disruptive, throwing up new opportunities, prophesying new social formations, and bringing anxieties about formerly secluded events and practices into a newly visible sphere?
The Coming of Photography in India transcends traditional cultural and technological narratives in order to present a subtle and compelling account of the limits, possibilities, and consequences of photography. Examining technology in order to explain the dynamic incarnation of photographic practice as cure, poison, and prophecy, Pinney presents a bold account which will reward anyone with an interest in India, photography, or the history of the book. 

Main chapters:
  • Photography as Cure
  • Photography as Poison
  • Photography as Prophecy

The courts of Queen Victoria and King Edward VII expected no less of them. The immaculately preserved negatives in this collection reconstruct a vanished history of opulence grandeur and pageantry that laced the great state occasions of this period. In these images M. Lafayette (Late of Paris) of Bond Street presents the Maharajas Maharanis and Nawabs as they wished to be remembered by posterity.

SUDESHNA GUHA(ed.), The Marshall Albums. Photography and Archaeology, India 2010(ISBN:978-1-890206-45-1). Hard cover 27,5 x 24 cm. 288 pages with 119 photographs.
"Drawing on the photographic albums in the personal collection of Sir John Marshall, Director-General of the Archaeological Survey of India from 1902-1928, this volume is a study exploring multiple perceptions of Indian history and related scholarship produced through archaeological fieldwork during the colonial period. While maintaining focus on Marshall's contributions to South Asian archaeology, the themes of the essays include the rise of archaeology as an authoritative element for historical scholarship during the 18th and 19th centuries, the preservation of monuments and historical landscapes, and the complex relationships between photography and archaeology. The book highlights major sites such as Sanchi, Sarnath, Mohenjodaro and Taxila-often referred to as Marshall's archaeological triumphs. With over 100 illustrations and an extensive bibliography, this volume offers a detailed account of the investigative technique that developed into a commanding 
disciplinary science-archaeology-within British India."

scarce Nicholas & Co. 1881 catalogue listing over 450 subjects.
In the 1850s and 1860s, Madras was an important centre for the rapidly developing art of photography. Dr Alexander Hunter founded the Madras School of Arts in 1850 and the Madras Photographic Society in 1857, where John Nicholas served on the committee.

The book begins with the early years of the Nicholas studios in Madras and Ootacamund, explains how the business achieved success in the 1870s and 1880s and concludes with the introduction of the Kodak, the rise of the amateur photographer, and the inevitable decline in the studios’ profitability that followed."

FALCONER, J.(ed.),The Waterhouse Albums. Central Indian Provinces, India 2009 (ISBN:  978-0-944142-84-4)Hard cover 27,5 x 24 cm. 264 pages with 120 photographs
""This volume presents, for the first time, the work and career of photographic pioneer James Waterhouse (1842-1922). From his early career in Central India in the 1860s, through to his technical achievements in Britain in the 1900s, this comprehensive account traces the career of an enigmatic figure devoted to the medium, acknowledged by his peers as “the father of photo-mechanical work”, yet who today remains unjustly neglected within the world of photography.Waterhouse was deputed to photograph rulers, tribes, communities and 
archaeological subjects in the Central Provinces. Among the results, many of which are reproduced in this publication, are perhaps the first photographs of the Buddhist site of Sanchi, and a series of remarkable portraits from the court of the Begum of Bhopal, as well as of significant noblemen and groups in the area.The Waterhouse Albums also offers an essay on Waterhouse's indefatigable experiments with photographic processes and his crucial work at the Survey of India in Calcutta. Appendices include transcripts. "
