The Zangaki brothers were two Greek photographers, active in 1870-1875 and 1880-1899, specialising in historical scenes and ancient Egypt. They occasionally worked with Hippolyte Arnoux, a French photographer who lived in Port-Said.
They were located in Port-Said and Cairo, and their photographs are very popular among collectors for their expressive liveliness, very representative of the daily lives of Egyptians.
