Portraits of Lima (Photography Exhibition by Embassy of Peru )

FB cover

Embassy of Peru in Collabration with Delhi Photography Club presents The Portraits of Lima (1867 – 1925) A Photography Exhibtion (All the photos are property of Archives of the National Library of Peru)

The Portraits of Lima (1867 – 1925) are a selection of photographs from the archives of Eugéne Courret, a remarkable photographer who was born in France in 1841, and decided to settle in Lima in 1860.

At that time, Lima, the capital of Peru, was one of the busiest cities in the Americas thanks to the bonanza produced by the exploitation of guano (fertilizer). It was a magnet for business travellers, artists, explorers and people from Europe who wanted to be a part of the life of “The Pearl of the Pacific”, a name given to the city, by the German naturalist Alexander Von Humboldt.

Courret, opened in 1863, his own photo studio named “Fotografia Central” in partnership with his brother Aquiles. Through the years, a big part of the Peruvian society was captured by the eyes of the Courret brothers, not only in the age of splendour but also during the dramatic years of the Pacific War (1879-1883). Entire families, babies, nannies, servants, immigrants, nuns, priest, authorities, army or navy officers and also Presidents of the Republic were portrayed by the lenses of Courret, accumulating an impressive collection of 1,57,800 glass negatives.

The photo studio Fotografia Central was awarded several prizes for its pictures and compositions not only in Peruvian contests but also in international competitions in Europe. For example in the year 1900 they were awarded with the Gold medal in the Universal Exposition held in Paris.

In 1887 Eugène Courret due to health issues left Lima and established a branch of this studio in Paris, where he continued to work until his death. Meanwhile his photo studio in Lima was managed by Adolphe Dubruil, an expert photographer and friend of Eugène Courret.

The studio in Lima remained open until 1935, after which it was forced to close due to the world economic crisis and the popularity of the automatic cameras.

This exhibition highlights the multiculturalism and diversity of the Peruvian Society in the early years of the Republic.

Meet the Real people from the world of Photography : Interview Pooja Rajput

Meet the Real people from the world of Photography this week we are featuring Pooja Rajput


We are featuring people who are hobbyist or professionals photographers and we think they are worth sharing of Delhi Photography Club Fan page .


The selection is purely at the Discretion of Founders and owners of Delhi Photography Club.

Pooja Rajput   | Travel Photographer and  Enthusiast  | Seasoned biker

“I don’t photograph subjects. I photograph the way they make me feel.”


Pooja Rajput is a photographer and a seasoned biker, being an extreme adventure enthusiast my camera goes along on with me on my motorcycle. Clicking varied facets of life mainly comprising of aerial, travel, landscapes, portraits, and fashion is what I do. My style consists of colorful and energetic imagery.


The urge to satisfy ones artistic hunger its essential to create thus my photographic journey started with finding a visual medium in photography. I picked up photography as a hobby. Slowly the hobby turned into a passion which now has become an integral part of my life.


My achievements as a photographer includes honourable  mentions in the International Photography Awards 2015 & 2016, publications in worldwide photography magazines like Lonely Planet, Asian photography to name a few. My pictures have been displayed at the international exhibitions like Nicefoto : an international celebration of amateur photography.


I have also photographed for the Book “Navy in the 21 century “released by the Honourable President of India, the Maritime Heritage of India 2016 released by the Honourable Prime Minister and various publications in the International Fleet Review 2016.


In my opinion the new age comes with new responsibilities. This era of digital photography has made it very convenient for everyone to go and photograph in a way which is very welcoming and affordable but out of these only few qualify as true photographers and artists who have the vision and the technical know how and dedicate their time to the art. Like any art requires practice so does photography and one tends to get better with the right vision. Taking on constructive criticism about your work is a part of learning process and should be taken in the right stride. Not obtaining right feedback is the mistake what most newbie’s make. The harsher your mentor is the better you will get should always be kept in the mind. Learning photography is a continuous process and the day you feel you have learnt all about photography means your decline will start from their. One should always be open about gaining knowledge from fellow photographers and seniors.


My otherwise busy schedule and the nature of job keeps me occupied but the urge to create and bring home stories which otherwise were untold keeps me going. The biggest challenge which I face is visiting the same place or event and yet come back with different set of images. The challenge to create something different every time keeps me going. The feeling of creating something new gives me a sense of achievement and is soul satisfying.
