Vintage Photographs of the Maharajas


New Delhi: Tasveer presented some rare vintage photographs of the Maharajas of India at The Gallery Art Motif, Lado Sarai, New Delhi. Supported by Vacheron Constantin, the show started on September 25 and will continue till October 6, 2011. The photographs in this exhibition are an evocation of princely India and a historical record of an age we will never again experience. Each portrait reflects a unique aura of majesty, effortlessly carried and expressively captured. The photographic portrait is never truly opaque and behind the façade of splendid dress and gleaming jewels, we glimpse a rare human side to the sitters. The Maharajas in these photographs, whose lineage can be traced back for centuries, mark the end of an epoch in India's history of ruling principalities. Besides the fabulous palaces, extraordinary jewels and inspired legends that these individuals left behind, we can now also have a look at their exhibited photographs.
