Photographer John McCosh

John McCosh, (1805-1885) was one of the first photographers known to have worked in India. He was an army surgeon with the East India Company. He was based in Lahore and Ludhiana just before the Second Anglo-Sikh war in 1847, and produced many photographs using the calotype process, including the only known picture of Duleep Singh as a Maharaja. The reign of this boy king, the son of Ranjit Singh, was ended by the war.
