Photography in Colonial and Postcolonial India as an Agent of Cultural Dominance

Photography in Colonial and Postcolonial India as an Agent of Cultural Dominance

Date: April 2, 2009
Creator: Joyce, Megan & Owen, Lisa N.
Description: This paper discusses research on the use of photography in colonial India. The thesis of the paper is that British photographers, through their choice of subjects and editing of their works, created a romanticized image of India as the British wished to see it. More recent photography has focused on the reality of the lives of the Indian people. Thus photography has moved from functioning as an agent of colonial domination and political propaganda to a tool used to bring aid and compassion to those in need.
