PHOTO WALLAHS 60 minutes, 1991, Filmmakers: David and Judith MacDougall   

The film is set in Mussoorie, a famous hill station in northern India, which has attracted tourists since the 19th century. In this setting photography has thrived. Without spoken commentary, the film discovers its subject in the streets, bazaars, shops, photographic studios and private homes of Mussoorie. In the process it compares the diverse work and attitudes of the local photographers - Mussoorie's "photo wallahs".
