Siddhartha Ghosh (1948 – 2002)

The archive’s entire resource on early Indian photography, especially family portraits, studio photographs and wedding images, comes from the collection of the late Siddhartha Ghosh. His real name was Amitabha Ghosh but he chose to use Siddhartha for his extensive output of articles, books on histories of technology and science fiction to name a few. His photographic collection in our archives ranges along 3 broad categories: products from different studios, from family albums, and the works of individual collections. We could also access other collections such as Sevati Mitra, Parimal Goswami and Debaleena Majumdar thanks to Siddhartha Ghosh.
