Exhibitions In the Image of the Other: Visualising a British-Himalayan Town, Shimla
14 October 2016 - 30 March 2017

A photographic exhibition portraying the natural and built spaces of Shimla

Shimla is the capital of the north Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It was the summer capital of British India from 1864-1947. Nursed on nostalgia, the British built Shimla (earlier 'Simla') as their ‘little version of England’ and by extension, of Britain itself, complete with neo-Tudor structures, leisure spots, and imposing residences- from cottages to castles, all complemented by a temperate European weather and landscapes. Today, Shimla serves as a hugely popular destination for tourists from all over the world, and its status as an ‘other’ continues to be celebrated.

Photographer Siddharth Pandey hails from Shimla and is currently a Doctoral Candidate at the University of Cambridge, working at the interface of Material Culture Studies and Fantasy Literature. His love for his unique hometown has shaped his photographic vision. The exhibition opens with a comparative photography of spaces in Britain and Shimla, and then continues with a focus on some key built and natural icons that have survived the test of time and inform Shimla's remarkable identity. All images are supported by Siddharth’s writings and reflections on the town’s unique history and his relationship with it.

We are hosting a series of free lecture to go with this exhibition, so please check on our lectures page for further details.

The Museum is open daily (Mon to Fri) 10am to 5pm, (Sat, Sun and Bank Holidays) 12pm to 5pm. We are closed between Christmas and New Year.
