Event Description

As one of the earliest photographic archives in the country, the Aditya Arya Archive began with the historical collection of the photojournalist, Kulwant Roy, presented to Aditya Arya, himself an eminent photographer.


This archive seeks to restore, collate and annotate the historical images of Kulwant Roy, presented to Aditya Arya. It is the intention of the archive to digitize, document and preserve this collection, and to provide a similar platform for other such photographic collections by making available the expertise acquired in the process. The archive would like to actively encourage the archiving of pre and post independence photography, both
amateur and professional and to disseminate these historical images through exhibitions and book publishing.

October 2 - 31, 2009

Exhibit may be viewed:
Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm and by appointment following the inauguration on October 2.
