Event Description

Samuel Bourne (30 October 1834 – 24 April 1912) was a British photographer known for his prolific seven years' work in India, from 1863 to 1870.

In 2002 Dr Xavier Guégan travelled around India in the footsteps of 19th Century traveller and photographer Samuel Bourne. He studied the way in which Bourne represented Indian people, architecture and landscape in his writings and photographs. This exhibition, a collaboration with Northumbria University and the British Library, brings together copies of Bourne’s original photographs together with images taken by Guégan. The exhibition provides a fascinating insight into the changing face of India over the last 150 years.
