At the University of California, Los Angeles,
Fowler Museum of Cultural History:

Traces of India: Photography, Architecture, and the
Politics of Representation, 1850-1900

March 7, 2004 to July 3, 2004
Traces of India explores how 19th-century European
photographers captured the great architectural sites
of India—from Mughal, Jain, and Sikh monuments in the
north to Hindu temples in the southern region of Tamil
Nadu to other Islamic, Hindu, and Buddhist monuments
in central India—reflecting imperial attitudes to
travel, archaeology, and the politics of memory. The
exhibition presents more than 200 master photographs,
as well as drawings, books, artifacts, and a selection
of popular imagery, situating them in a changing
political culture.
