Indian Memory Project

Started by photographer, archivist, and curator Anusha Yadav in 2010, the Indian Memory Project uses photographs and textual narratives from family archives to contextualize the rich history and culture of the Indian subcontinent. The best way to explore the site is with the Interactive Timeline, which can be located under The Project tab. Here they will find resources arranged in chronological order and accompanied by short annotations from the contributor. For instance, an image from around 1860 showcases the contributor, Jenny Mallin's, great, great, great grandparents. Mallin then details how members of her family sailed to India in 1798, and that Ms. Mallin still cooks out of her family's 150-year-old cookbook. Or, circa 1915, readers may be interested in a group wedding photograph in which friends and family pose for a snapshot in Kakinada. The narratives, photographs, and letters that make up the Indian Memory Project have been contributed by readers all over the world, and, of course, readers are encouraged to contribute their own histories to continue the conversation.
