early photography Libya

MÜLLER, D., Fotografien aus der der Libyschen Wüste. Ein expedition des Afrikaforschers Gerard Rohlfs in den Jahren 1873/74 fotografiert von Philipp Remelé, Bremen 2002(Edition Temmen). Hard cover 21 x 26,5 cm. 124 pag. with 90 photographs. Text in German. 
Diese Reise begann im Winter 1873, als der Bremer Afrika-Reisende Gerhard Rohlfs zu einer dreimonatigen Expedition in die libysche Wüste aufbrach. Die vom ägyptischen Vizekönig grosszügig finanzierte Forschungsreise soll dazu beitragen, die Verbindung der ägyptischen Oasen mit der tripolitischen Oase Kufra zu erkunden. Ausserdem werden genaue Karten vom durchreisten Gebiet angefertigt, die geologischen Verhältnisse erforscht und biologische sowie ethnologische Sammlungen angelegt. An dieser Expedition nimmt auf Empfehlung des 'Photographischen Vereins zu Berlin' auch Philipp Remelé[1844-1883], studierter Chemiker und Fotograf, teil. Unter schwierigen Bedingungen dokumentiert er in dieser Frühphase der Fotografie die Rohlfsche Wüstenreise und fertigt zahlreiche Landschaftsaufnahmen sowie ethnografische Porträts an. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Deutschland macht Remelé von seinen Negativ-Platten Abzüge, um sie zu 110 Prachtalben zusammenzustellen, die an Fürsten, wissenschaftliche Vereine und hervorragende Gelehrte grösstenteils verschenkt werden.”

Francis Frith in Egypt and Palestine.

Francis Frith in Egypt and Palestine.




eatly photography in Egypt and Palestine

NICKEL, D.R., Francis Frith in Egypt and Palestine. A Victorian photographer abroad, Princeton University Press 2004. ISBN 9780691115153. Hard cover 28,5 x 25,5 cm. 283 pages with 85 photographs. 
"In 1856, the English photographer Francis Frith set out on the first of three tours of Egypt and the Holy Lands. Traveling up the Nile and then on to the Sinai, Palestine, Syria, and Lebanon, Frith systematically crafted exquisite pictures of ruins, landscapes, and legendary sites. He then published his views in England and America in a variety of formats, becoming something of a celebrity in photographic circles. This book, the first to place Frith"s Egyptian and Levantine images in cultural context, reveals the distinct meanings these ostensibly topographic pictures held for the photographer and his Victorian audience.  
A Quaker by birth and an entrepreneur by nature, Frith brought to his photographic projects a sense of mission: to revive and confirm the stories of the Bible, while offering the region to armchair travelers as a seamless Oriental milieu of Romantic reverie. Francis Frith in Egypt and Palestine narrates the political, intellectual, and social concerns that make Frith representative of England's encounter with the East in the nineteenth century. Historian of photography Douglas R. Nickel brings a sophisticated interdisciplinary approach to bear on the subject in order to expose the complexity of Frith's image-making, setting the photographs against a Victorian backdrop of religious debate, imperialist thought, Romantic philosophy, and Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics."
