Published on the occasion of Figures In Time: Bourne & Shepherd, an exhibition of 19th century vintage prints by Samuel Bourne, Charles Shepherd and others from the Bourne & Shepherd studio, this publication reproduces the 43 photographs, along with an original essay by Hugh Ashley Rayner whose extensive research on Bourne, and expertly compiled fascinating entry about his photographic travels in India, produces a lively account of his life and work in the seven years he spent here.
One of the most famous of European commercial photographers, and the most prolific photographer of colonial India, Samuel Bourne arrived in the country in 1863. In partnership with Charles Shepherd, he set up the studio Bourne and Shepherd, which soon became one of the most prestigious studios of its time — patronised heavily by royalty, nobility, Europeans and Indians alike. Up until its closing in 2016, it was considered one of the oldest operating photography studios in the world.
Charles Shepherd became more known as a master printer, heading the commercial side of operations and the bulk of portraiture at the studio. Samuel Bourne, on the other hand, assumed the position of the travelling photographer, immortalising the Indian scenery, architecture and people through the length and breadth of the country.
