约翰斯顿和霍夫曼

 

约翰斯顿和霍夫曼。他们在加尔各答的工作室成立于1882年,1890年又在大吉岭成立了工作室。约翰斯顿在1891年去世后,霍夫曼接手经营。

霍夫曼在1891年7月跟随约翰·克劳德·怀特开始了他的西藏之旅,之后又出版了怀特的照片。他们也在西藏和尼泊尔边境开设了一些小型照相馆,在那里专门为当地的居民拍摄照片。

在19世纪90年代中期,他们在西姆拉的分公司正式开业。值得一提的是,他们还曾于1890年在缅甸仰光开设工作室,虽然没有多少人知道它,也不知道它是何时关闭的。

该公司可能是在在20世纪50年代在某个地方关闭的。也许,在印度,他们是仅次于Bourne and Shepherd的第二大商业摄影机构,他们拍摄了关于西藏南部,印度北部和东北部,锡金,尼泊尔独特视角的照片。




黄建鹏画廊收藏了自1860年代到2010年代多位西藏摄影史中重要摄影家的原作,是中国收藏和研究西藏影像最为专业的机构之一。

 

Johnston and Hoffmann

 

Johnston and Hoffmann. Calcutta Studio established in 1882. Darjeeling Studio established in 1890. Hoffmann took over the business on the death of Johnston in 1891.

Hoffmann joined John Claude White in July 1891 on a trip to Tibet and later published White's photographs. They also established smaller studios along the border between Tibet and Nepal, where they specialized in photographing the local inhabitants.

Simla branch opened in mid 1890s. It should be noted that a studio was opened in Rangoon, Burma sometime around 1890 although not much is known about it, or when it closed.

The company closed somewhere in the 1950s. Probably, after the studios of Bourne and Shepherd, the second largest commercial photographers in India with their large catalog of views of North and Northeastern India, Sikkim and Nepal.




Huang Jianpeng Gallery collected lots of original works of the important photographers in Tibet photography history. It is one of the most professional institutions that collect and study Tibet images.
