About

Egyptian and middle eastern albumen photographs by Pascal Sebah & Felix Bonfils. Each framed and matted. Priced each. Provenance: Estate of Phillip Condax former curator George Eastman House International Museum of Photography. Photo of two Kurdish men and a Catholic cleric, taken by Pascal Sebah at the universal exposition in Vienna, 1873. Pascal Sébah (1823–1886) was a photographer in Constantinople (now Istanbul). He was born in Constantinople, then the capital of the Ottoman Empire, to a Syrian Catholic father and an Armenian mother. In 1857 he opened his first photography studio in Constantinople[1] at 439 Grande Rue de Pera in the center of the city.[2] By 1873 he was successful enough to open another studio in Cairo. He worked with Turkish painter Osman Hamdi Bey and exhibited at the 1873 Ottoman exhibition in Vienna, Austria. Félix Bonfils (8 March 1831 – 1885) was a French photographer and writer who was active in the Middle East. He was born in Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort and died in Alès. Félix worked as a bookbinder but in 1860 he joined General d'Hautpoul's expedition to the Levant. Soon after returning from Lebanon he became a photographer. When his son Adrien fell ill, Félix remembered the green hills around Beirut and sent him there to recover, being accompanied by Marie-Lydie Cabanis Bonfils, Félix's wife.[citation needed] The family moved to Beirut in 1867 where they opened a photographic studio called "Maison Bonfils".[1][2].
