Tasveer presents an exhibition of photographs by British Derry Moore. On display will be over 60 limited edition signed prints from an ongoing project Moore began in India in 1976 on a series of visits to India. The subjects combine portraits, interiors and landscapes, and poignantly document what may be the last relics and aesthetics of a pre-modernised India. Derry Moore, the 12th Earl of Drogheda, made his name photographing the interiors and portraits on the European aristocracy, including those of Queen Elizabeth II and the late Queen Mother. Following his education at Eton, he studied painting at Oskar Kokoschka s School of Seeing in Salzburg, Austria, and later took up photography lessons under the guidance of the Bill Brandt.
