Genre: Photograph

Photograph of the Rogi Cliff on the Tibet Road, Himachal Pradesh, taken by Samuel Bourne in 1865. Bourne made three extensive trips to Kashmir and the Himalayas between 1863 and 1866. This precarious view is an example of the type of image for which Bourne was noted; he often went to great lengths to obtain perfect results. Bourne submitted many photographs to the 6th Annual Exhibition of the Bengal Photographic Society of 1863. He impressed the judges and critics with the clarity and composition of his images, and won a gold medal for one of his views.
