The traditional Adivasi cultures of Central India are steeped in mythologies, songs and rituals that connect them to their natural environment, but today we hear little about these stories.

Back in 1926, as a young graduate from Merton College Oxford, Verrier Elwin had the promise of a brilliant career ahead. However, his life took an unexpected trajectory when he left for India to engage in social work for the poor as personal reparation for what he perceived was the injustice of British colonial rule.

This Exhibition of Photographs from Central India was first shown in 2017 in Patangarh village in eastern Madhya Pradesh. From Tribal Forest to Urban Jungle now brings these photographs of the tribal people and cultures of Central India as seen through the lens of Verrier Elwin, back to the UK.
OPEN: Tuesday – Saturday 10.30 – 17.00 (Thurs late night opening until 20.00)
CLOSED: Sunday, Monday, and Bank Holidays
