Using the photograph albums compiled from images taken during the 1904 British Mission to Lhasa I curated a bi-lingual (English and Tibetan) exhibition for the Tibet Museum, Dharamshala, India. Rather than create a visual history of the mission the exhibition used a series of themes to explore the photographs and the types of historical work visual culture can do. The exhibition opened on the 14th April 2017. After Dharamshala the exhibition will travel to various Tibetan settlements in India.
