A Biographical Dictionary of 19th Century Photographers in South and South-East Asia
Captain, Oxfordshire Light Infantry.
44 photographs of Kashmir and Ladakh presented to the Royal Geographical Society, 1891: ‘This is an excellent series of forty-four photographs taken by Captain A.F. Mockler-Ferryman when on a shooting trip in Ladak. Nearly all of them are remarkably good photographs. That such good results have been obtained, notwithstanding the fact that Captain Mockler-Ferryman was unable to do any developing until he had carried the plates about for nearly a thousand miles on pack animals among the Himalayas should encourage travellers to take photographic cameras with them, even though the country they are about to visit may be extremely rough, and the prospect of having to carry their undeveloped plates for a great distance a certainty.’
