John Falconer, British Library 
A Biographical Dictionary of 19th Century Photographers in South and South-East Asia

 
Amateur, India
Founded as the Photographic Society of Bengal in 1856.
Journal of the Photographic Society of Bengal, no. 2, 21 January 1857 - no. 3, May 1857. Journal of the Bengal Photographic Society, vol. 1, no. 1, 1 May 1862 - vol. 5, no. 13, September 1865. Journal of the Bengal Photographic Society, new series, vol. 1, no. 1, March 1867 - vol. 2, no. 6, April 1871.
 
In the opening editorial of the new series of the journal, the writer looks back on the past year as one of financial depression which ‘has brought misery and ruin upon thousands who had looked forward with hope to better times at its commencement; commerce and trade have suffered fearfully; and the distress which has fallen upon business, has, as may reasonably be supposed, had its counter-effect upon science, art, and charity.’ Subscriptions to the society had inevitably fallen and for a period (in order to keep the society solvent) the publication of the journal had been suspended after the issue of September 1865. Also, or consequently, there was a dearth of suitable men willing to act on the council (particularly as Father Carbonelle was returning to Europe).
