The black-and-white series The Historian’s Eye presents a photographic record of William Dalrymple’s travels across India over two years while researching his book titled The Anarchy, published by Bloomsbury in September 2019. It features a unique set of images of the places where art and history were being made in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and includes a small selection of photographs from modern-day Pakistan. Dalrymple’s approach to photography – facilitated here by the mobility and immediacy of a camera phone – is intuitive and instinctive, while his aesthetic reflects the sensibility of polished, economical prose, resulting in stark, high-contrast images pared down to their essence.
