The British entered India in 1858, and didn't leave until 1947 when they finally gave the Indians their independence back. Without wishing to examine the rights and wrongs of this era, I found the many old photographs from that period fascinating, not least because the British ones are still regularly on display there !! But India has obviously got a long history, and this interesting array of old pictures from various eras are still hanging in various places in Rajasthan. I wanted to photograph them as they stood, using the reflections and the natural aging to acknowledge where they hang now.
