Photography as cure. 2.
Photography as poison. 3.
Photography as prophecy. Index.
"Photography was discussed and practised in India within a few months of the announcement of Daguerre's process in 1839. Photographic societies were established in Bombay, Calcutta and Madras in the 1850s and Indian-owned portrait studios flourished.

For good. Rosie's lost without her best friend.
But on the eve of her departure to join Alex in Boston, Rosie gets news that will change her life forever - and keep her at home in Ireland.
