Institutions is a photographic series by the France-based British photographer Christopher Taylor, that explores the interior spaces of imperial buildings in Bombay (Mumbai) and Calcutta (Kolkata). These black and white photographs investigate the ambiguous meanings and impact of colonialism on contemporary India.
A trained zoologist and self taught photographer, Christopher Taylor has travelled extensively in India. From his very first visit in the 1980s, he was struck by its architecture, and particularly fascinated by the manner in which the two cities featured in this series, once proud centres of the British Raj, serve as windows into history.
Taylor’s photographs, devoid of people and colour, produce an atmosphere of timelessness and speak simultaneously of stagnation and preservation. Deepika Sorabjee’s original essay ‘Stilled Time’ that accompanies the photographs provides an insightful and poetic reading of Taylor’s image and their unique relationship to time - in the past, as in the future.
