What is DINODIA ?
In India many names or
surnames are based on the place of birth. Since
Jagdish Agarwal, the founder of Dinodia Photo
was born in Dinod, a small village in Haryana State,
in Northern India, hence the name DINODIA, which
literally means, a person from Dinod. The idea was
to acknowledge one's roots.
When was Dinodia Photo started ?
On 1st April 1987.
How many photographs are in
DINODIA's collection ?
The library consists of
historical photographs from 1870 onwards, paintings,
illustrations, black and white images and contemporary
color images. The total archive is over four million images online.
How many contributors for this
We represent over 100 image
libraries from various parts of the world. And in
India while the total number of contributors would
be several hundred, the core number of photographers
remain about 100.
Does DINODIA undertake assignments
While we would love to
believe that DINODIA would have all images you need
from India, it does happen sometimes that a particular
image is not in our collection. Under such rare
circumstances, one of DINODIA's over 100 photographers,
spread all over India, would shoot the photograph
to your exact specifications.
