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

 
Amateur, India
Civil Engineer, superintendent of the Bihar Irrigation Works in mid-1870s. Member of the Bengal Photographic Society in early 1860s, and contributed ‘well-selected and most artistic views’ to the society’s 1862 exhibition. Report in Friend of India on Bengal Photographic Society Exhibition of 1862 (reproduced in Journal of the Bengal Photographic Society, vol 1, no. 2, 1 Sep 1862, p.47):
‘Mr Levinge has started most successfully as a contributor. The ‘Railway Bridge’, No. 151 is a clear, clever Photograph, and the ‘Banian Tree at Sooltangunge’ (152) is beautiful; this appears to us quite a gem in Photography. The ‘Cotton Tree’ covered with elephant creepers is a good Photography [sic], and would have made a pleasing picture if a better foreground effect could have been arranged.’
Thanked by Rajendralala Mitra for the ‘set of eighteen negatives’, several of which were used to illustrate Mitra’s The Antiquities of Orissa (2 vols, Calcutta, 1875).
