This book covers the life and work of a leading photographer, A T W Penn, who lived and worked in Ootacamund, Tamil Nadu (then the Presidency of Madras) from 1865 to 1911. Penn's photographs provide a valuable historical record of the people and countryside of the Nilgiris and major events and calamities such as the great famine of 1877-1878. His photographs of the indigenous people of India and the aboriginal tribes of the Nilgiri Hills have been well known and are held in all the principal international photographic collections. Written by his great-grandson, the text is illustrated with photographs from public photographic collections and the author's personal collection.
