The invention of photography was first announced in Istanbul's local Takvim-i Vekayi newspaper on 28th October 1839, but travelers were already photographing the empire's landscape as early as 1840.
Sultan Abdulhamid II, who reigned from 1876 to 1909, was known as a conservative monarch that was also open to technological development. He was known to have a profound interest in photography, as evidenced by his extensive archives and his proficiency in its techniques. The municipality of Istanbul has just published a three-volume book of photos taken during his reign which will provide a first chance for the public to view previously unseen photos from the end of the 19th century and the turn of the 20th century, as most had only been accessible to archivists until now.
