Photo History in North Africa

Between 1840 and 1910 photographic production linked to North Africa was considerable. Next to studio portraiture it was a successful branch of commercial photography primarily due to the fashion for the Orient since the Grand Tours of the 18ith century writers, painters, and archaeologists would travel to Egypt, Syria, Palestine, and Turkey. The result of these trips were books, novels and paintings, that inspired the Europeans imagination. Colonization, the development of trade, tourism, and the modernization of communications intensified contacts between East and West. The world exhibitions held in major European capitals also increased familiarity with these countries. Photography advanced in step with these changes. In 70 years, images made with great difficulty by the pioneers,artists and archaeologists, gave way to commercial mass production and finally to a boom in amateur photography by ever more numerous tourists.
