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

 
Amateur, India Police Battalion, Hill Tipperah. Letter from C. T. Buckland, officiating Commissioner of Chittagong, in response to Government request for information and photographic representations of peoples of India, notes, ‘Captain Fagan of the Police Battalion at Tipperah has kindly undertaken as an amateur to do what he can for the portraits of the Muneeporees, Tipperahs and Kookies of this Frontier.’[1] In a further letter of 24 December 1861, Buckland records that ‘Captain Fagan was unable to take the photographic likenesses, which he endeavoured to obtain at Tipperah. His apparatus was out of order, or not sufficiently quickworking to take a portrait of the subjects who could not be persuaded to sit still.’[2]
