Curatorial notes
 
Examines how portraits provide on colonialism and the acceptance the dress codes of local populations. This includes both the wearing of local clothing by European travellers and residents along with the indigenous populations of areas being photographed in western clothing styles. Photographs are also included that show interactions between different racial groups.

Additional examples requested
 
We are seeking to improve the range of examples shown here and welcome additions from your own collection and those of insititutions.

I'm seeking further scans that expand on these Cultural interactions.
