November 5 – 28, 2019

James Robertson ( 1813-1888) and Felix (Felice) Beato (1832-1909), comprehensively documented famous Egyptian sites. Their photographic style and systematic -almost industrial- approach to creating a reference for all publics, was an example followed by photographers of the Middle-East in the late 1870’s.
