Lala Narain Prasad

Collection, LNP
Lala Narain Prasad (1924-2016) was a resident of Haveli Haider Quli, Chandni Chowk, Delhi. Narain Prasad got his first camera in 1938 at the age of 14 and went on to photograph the changing face of Delhi and its residents until the 1980’s. Lala Narain Prasad’s carefully dated and captioned collections allow us to see the life in Delhi touching themes of childhood, youth, student activism, and street life, formative years of Indraprastha school and college, and so on. In addition to being a photographer, he was also a meticulous collector and record keeper of his family's photographs, leaving us an archive which has allowed us to see the city in the period 1880-1930 through studio and family portraits.
