Description
The first French photographer to settle in the Near East, P. Felix Bonfils established a studio in Beirut in 1867. He is credited with introducing the genre of Near Eastern photographic portraiture to Europe, and the 54 images reproduced here—taken by Felix, his wife Lydie, and his son Adrien—include remarkable portraits of Bedouin tribesmen, Ottoman officials, Shiite Muslims, and village peasants in Syria, Palestine, and Egypt. While many of these images were posed and sometimes pander to the European taste for the exotic, they nevertheless provide an invaluable social record, containing many sensitive ethnographic portraits and objective street scenes and landscapes.
