About The Event

History in the Making: Visual Archives of Kulwant Roy, curated by Aditya Arya at Arthshila Santiniketan in collaboration with Museo Camera. 

A priceless collection of photographs by press photographer Kulwant Roy from the 1930s to 1960s. Press photographer Kulwant Roy’s prints and negatives remained forgotten in boxes for over twenty-five years after his death, until their inheritor Aditya Arya, a photographer himself, began cataloguing them. In the process, he discovered a rare and valuable visual archive, including many unpublished pictures, of a momentous era in India’s history. Some of the rare visual documentation includes the Muslim League meetings, INA trials, the signing of the Indian Constitution, as well as significant post-independence milestones such as the building of Bhakra Nangal Dam.
