Désiré Charnay Expeditionary Photographer

Désiré Charnay Expeditionary Photographer




early photography in Mexico, Madagascar, Java & Australia

DAVIS, K.F., Désiré Charnay Expeditionary Photographer, Albuquerque 1981 University of New Mexico Press. Hard cover with dust jacket 20, 5 x 26 cm. 212 pag. with 124 photographs. 
"Claude-Joseph Désiré Charnay (2 May 1828 – 24 October 1915) was a French traveller and archaeologist notable both for his explorations of Mexico and Central America, and for the pioneering use of photography to document his discoveries. He was born in Fleurie, and studied at the Lycée Charlemagne. In 1850, he became a teacher in New Orleans, Louisiana, and there became acquainted with John Lloyd Stephens's books of travel in Yucatan. He travelled in Mexico, under a commission from the French ministry of education, in 1857-1861; in Madagascar in 1863; in South America, particularly Chile and Argentina, in 1875; and in Java and Australia in 1878. In 1880-1883, he again visited the ruined cities of Mexico. As traveler and writer of considerable fame in the late nineteenth century, Charnay made the first photographs of Mayan ruins in Mexico when he visited Chichén-Itzá, Palenque, Mitla, Izamal, and Uxmal in 1859. Later he took many other photographs in Mexico and in Madagascar, Java, and Australia . [The book] is important in the history of photography, anthropology, and archaeology."

Early Photography Mexico

FOLGORAIT,L. , Seeing Mexico Photographed, New Haven 2008(Yale University Press / ISBN 9780300140927). Hard cover 24 x 16,5 cm.252 pages with 28 photographs. 
"This book presents the photographs of four historically engaged artists and explains what they reveal about the highly dramatic revolutionary and post-revolutionary period in Mexico from 1910 to 1935. The works of these photographers—American Walter H. Horne, Italian Tina Modotti, and Mexicans Agustín Víctor Casasola  and Manuel Álvarez Bravo—are discussed not just as windows onto events but as artworks that offer both objective reporting and stylized expression.The twenty-five years covered in the book encompass some of the most convulsive developments in Mexico, from the violence and cataclysmic changes wrought by the Mexican Revolution to the immense struggles to forge a new nation and a new government. During this period, the work of the four photographers—two primarily documentary,  one propagandistic, and one artistic and personal—enabled Mexicans to understand the forces that had brought their nation to armed conflict and social transformation."
