INDIAN WOMEN THROUGH THE AGES
I was left completely mesmerised by these rare photographs of women that were featured on the BBC website last week.
The photos are from a new exhibition in Delhi curated by Tasveer Arts and Cinnamon to highlight how picture technology changed the circulation and portrayal of the female image from the 1850s to the 1950s.
"These photographs take us on a journey from colonial studies of Indian women in the 19th century, to private studio portraits from the early 20th century, and then to iconic and glamorous photographs of Bollywood actresses from the 1940s and 50s."
My favourite has got to be the leaning dancer, just chillin with her quirky shoes on.
