Description

Culture Change, Adaptation, and Image Film Series
Photo Wallahs (1992)

In India, there are still itinerant portrait photographers who take pictures for people who do not have cameras. How has picture making changed over time? The film focuses on the photographers of Mussoorie, a hill station in the Himalayan foothills of northern India. Their fame has attracted tourists since the 19th century. Dr. Amardeep Singh, Professor of Post-Colonial Literatures, Lehigh University, and Kate Pourshariati, Penn Museum Film Archivist, introduce the program and facilitate the discussion. The Penn Humanities Forum and South Asian Center at the University of Pennsylvania are sponsors. Free with Museum admission.
