South Asian Photography
Examines the development and reception of photography from the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries across South Asia, focusing on how photographic practices evolved in response to socio-political factors such as class, gender, and colonisation. The course will cover topics such as studio portraits, painted images, and fine-art prints looking at work by artists such as Dayanita Singh and Raghu Rai.
