One of the many great qualities of cities is their ability to defy the desire of the planners who attempt to orchestrate

their form through design. Cities are wondrous organisms, like microbes they evolve, and the damage as well as the

transformations are usually done before citizens, conservation advocates and civil society more generally even realize that

change is underway—what is, in truth, most often a rear-guard action.

 

 

Photography and film are perhaps the only visual mediums that truthfully capture this process. It is for this reason that

the works of Thomas Lüttge and Hans Winterberg are of importance to the conservation movement, as well as a historic

documentation of Hyderabad and Golconda.
