Located in New Delhi, the Alkazi Foundation of the Arts (AFA) building is built on 3 levels dedicated to the preservation of its vast collection of vintage photographic prints to serve the purpose of scholarship and research. Its current research topics include 'Photography and the Revolt of 1857', 'Painted Photographs', 'The Durbars of 1877, 1903, 1911' etc. It also recently held an exhibition of images taken by Sir John Marshall between 1902 and 1928. Some of the highlights of its Collection include photos by John Nicholas Tressider and Samuel Bourne.
