The exhibition, which will continue till October 31, also features places where art and history were being made in the 18th and 19th centuries and includes a small selection of photographs from modern-day Pakistan.
Photography was the authors first love, the artistic outlet of his youth. The collection of pictures far from being snapped by expert equipment come from a single Samsung Edge camera phone, which led to his re-discovery of the medium. Dalrymple's approach to photography is intuitive and instinctive, while his aesthetic reflects the sensibility of economical prose, resulting in stark, high-contrast images that highlight an intermingling of the monumental past and fleeting present. Each photograph reveals a narrative tension within itself, between stillness and movement, history and reality.
