Peshawar Fort 1860
This early photograph shows how the language of the
new medium was developing. The composition-the tree and the use of
figures to create diagonal lines-dramatically enhances depth of field.
The men carefully placed along the road also add to the information
being conveyed by the shot. The road is a portion of the Grand Trunk Road. Today, the foreground area is one of the busiest traffic intersections in Peshawar.
