A commercial photographer, Aberchirder-born Bremner worked in India for forty years, returning to Scotland in 1922. This group shows the Khan of Kalat seated on the right. The Khan ruled over the Baluchistan province (in the south-west of modern day Pakistan) from 1857 to 1893 until he was deposed by the British for his barbarous and cruel acts, including having his Prime Minister and family beheaded. The province would later come under British imperial administration. The photograph’s blank background accentuates the luxurious detail of the costumes.
