Curatorís Talk with Senior Curator of Western Art Carole McNamara: An Eye on the Empire: Photographs of Colonial India and Egypt

Photography, with its ability to capture in precise detail the geography, peoples, and culture of far-flung lands, brought this exotic world home to an eager audience in England, and its commercial potential sent numerous professional photographers to both India and Egypt. Join UMMA’s Senior Curator of Western Art Carole McNamara for a trip back in time and an exploration of the images that shaped colonial conceptions of these lands, including a works by leading photographers of the era such as Francis Frith and Samuel Bourne.

The exhibition An Eye on Empire is offered in conjunction with the theme semester, India and the World and is on view March 22 – June 29, 2014.
