Félix Bonfils (Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort, March 8 1831 - Alès, April 9 1885) was a French photographer and one of the first, along with Emile Bechard, who documented the Middle East with a new tool: photography. The photographic studio he created in 1867 in Beirut, Lebanon, produced a very large photographic documentation about Egypt and the Middle East from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. These photographs were widely distributed, and became famous and are still nowadays, a reference in the history of Eastern photography.

    Het duurde wat lang voor ik mijn aankoop bezorgd kreeg, maar dat kan ook aan de drukte rond kerst en de jaarwisseling gelegen hebben. Verder vond ik de kwaliteit van mijn aankoop tegenvallen.
