Amateur, India
68th Native Infantry; on half-pay 1879; employed in Topographical Survey.
His photographs were exhibited at the Bengal Photographic Society Exhibition of 1869:
Capt. W. G. Murray of the Survey Department has struck out an entirely new path, and exhibited a very beautiful and interesting series of photographs of Indian flowers,fruit, and vegetables, admirably coloured with the aniline colours and we are glad to see that a special prize has been awarded for these photographs, coupled with a recommendation of the judges, that in future a prize should be awarded for such subjects.[1]
Views of cave temples at Cuttack and Bhubaneshwar temples shown in Bengal Photographic Society Exhibition of 1872.[2] Photographs by Murray appear as engravings in B. Ball, Jungle life in India (Thomas de la Rue, London, 1880). Large album of views by Murray, ‘containing approximately one thousand one hundred photographs, the majority topographical studies in England, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and India’, sold at Sothebys, 26 Jun 1975.
