Félix Bonfils (Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort, March 8th, 1831 - Alès, April 9th, 1885) was a French photographer and one of the first, along with Emile Bechard, to document the Middle East with the new tool of photography. He founded a photographic studio in 1867 in Beirut, Lebanon, that produced a very large photographic documentation about Egypt and the Middle East from the late 19th century.
