Some of the earliest views of India and Burma, shot by the pioneering 19th century British photographer.

Part of the V&A's India Festival, this exhibition includes 60 of Captain Linnaeus Tripe's pictures from his travels in the region, taken between 1854-1860.

We see how Tripe exploited the possibilities of the emerging new medium to document archaeological sites, monuments and landscapes rarely seen in the West. Combining the keen eye of a surveyor with the sensibilities of an artist, his skilful use of the camera allowed him to create a unique impression of the world around him.
