Photographs of the Middle East
This exhibition showcases a diverse collection of vintage photographs from Egypt, Palestine, Syria, and Lebanon by the renowned photo studios of Pascal Sebah, J.P. Sebah, Abdullah Freres, Lekegian, Bonfils, Zangaki, Arnoux, Beato, Dumas, and Lehnert and Landrock. These photographers had reputable studios in Constantinople; eventually they opened branches in Beirut, Cairo, Jerusalem and other cities in the Middle East. These Ottoman photographers captured compelling pictures of the people, as well as historic sites and landscapes of the Middle East. This exhibition of nearly 70 images represents varied aspects of the life and times in the Middle East from 1870 to 1900.
