Fred Bremner, River crossing, River Jhelum, Kashmir, c.1896. Platinum print made by Pradip Malde from collodion glass negative.
The Scottish National Portrait Gallery is to host an exhibition of stunning photos of the Indian Raj.
The exhibition is part of photography season at the gallery. Called Lucknow to Lahore: Fred Bremner's vision of India, the exhibition will chart the remarkable career of Bremner, a commercial photographer who left Scotland for India in 1882 and spent the next 40 years working there.
This selection of 24 outstanding images, beautifully printed by renowned photographer Pradip Malde from the original glass negatives, will offer a rich, personal perspective on the people and places that Bremner encountered.
The exhibition will open a season of photography at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery this autumn, which also includes the work of the multi-award-winning Czech-born photographer Jitka Hanzlová, and Leading Lights: Portraits by KK Dundas, which captures many of the stars who have studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, in Glasgow.
The exhibition is running from 6 October 2012 to 7 April 2013. For more information, visit the Scottish National Portrait Gallery website
