This picture from the William Johnson album was taken between 1855 and 1859 in the Photographs from west India collection and titled, Maharatta Temple. At first glance, you notice three Indian men standing by the temple with only one or two articles of clothing that are covering them. They also seem to not make eye contact with the photographer or the camera while he is taking the picture. This makes me think that the men are some sort of religious leader like the ones who give up most of their belongings and valuables to live a religious life. The temple has very intricate with its designs and structure which makes it look very well kept and important to the people who worship here. Religion is a very big part of the Indian people whether that be Hindu, Islam, Christianity/Judaism, or any other sect which is very much portrayed in this image. The picture makes me wonder what kind of religious practices take place here, and when this beautiful but old seeming temple was created. Also, how did the men feel about being photographed by their place of worship?
