20,85 €

From 1867 to 1939, Maison Bonfils was one of the most prolific photographic studios in the Middle East. A Cévennes family settled in Beirut, Félix Bonfils, his wife Lydie and their son Adrien, and then their successor Abraham Guiragossian organised photographic expeditions to Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Greece, Turkey and the Holy Land and produced hundreds of portraits. Their images, witnesses of a bygone era, have been disseminated throughout the world and are present in numerous collections in France and abroad. This book retraces the history of this studio thanks to an unpublished exhibition at the Musée du Colombier, in partnership with the Médiathèque de l'architecture et du patrimoine.
