Photographer John Murray

Some of the finest views of India taken during the 1850s-60s were the work of Dr. John Murray (1809-98), a Scottish officer in the Bengal Medical Service who is acknowledged as one of the great masters of the calotype process. Between the 1850s and early 1860s he made a large series of large-format paper negatives of architectural subjects in Northern India, producing a particularly important and detailed documentation of the Taj Mahal
