Descriptions
Description
This landscape format albumen silver print depicts Humayun's Tomb in Delhi. The tomb occupies the center of the composition, resting upon a rather shallow horizon. The photograph is shot to align with one of the corners of the square tomb, providing a view of two sides of the monument. The foreground consists of a barren landscape with just a few small trees.
