The Raja Deen Dayal Studios is an exhibition on the life and work of India’s pioneering 19th century photographer Raja Deen Dayal and his Studio. The exhibition is being facilitated by the ongoing project with the Deen Dayal Archive at IGNCA and showcases selected reproductions.

Our role

We provided the full range of services required to conceptualise, design and implement this exhibition.  This includes surveying Deen Dayal images held in other collections around the world, researching Deen Dayal, his Studio, life and times, digital restoration and reproduction of images, and an exhibition catalogue. The pioneering exhibition showcased the spread of Deen Dayal’s photographic oeuvre.
