At the Convergence exhibition, visitors will see photographs of India taken over two and a half centuries by Indian and French photographers. The period during which the photographs were shot ranges from the mid-nineteenth century till the 1970s. Many photographs that will be on display have never been seen in India before. Those who captured these images were fearless travelers, writers, photographers, journalists, and artists. Notable among them are Louis Rousselet, who came to India in the midnineteenth century, and Marc Riboud, a French journalist who traveled across Asia in the 1950s. Works by other European masters such as Denis Brihat, Paul Almahsy, and Michel Semeniako who took trips to India from the 1950s until the 1970s will also be on display.

Among the images will be a selection of 19th-century prints and negatives from the most prestigious French institutions such as the National Museum of Asiatic Arts – Guimet, Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac, Musée Nicéphore Niépce Museum, Maison Européenne de la Photographie and Musée Goupil – Ville de Bordeaux. Photographs from these institutions will be displayed in India for the first
time.
