Catalogue Note

Two versions of a stunning series of photographs of a tiger hunt in India, documenting the preparation for the hunt, setting up camp, staking out the bait of a water buffalo, stalking the tiger, bringing the game back to camp, and paying the game beaters. All ten photographs from Tiger Hunting appear in A Tiger Hunt, albeit in slightly different order and occasionally with variant captions. A Tiger Hunt additionally contains two photographs not found in the published version: "The Camp" and "Visit of Village Authorities."
