Early photography Middle East Louis de Clerq

Sotheby's, Photographic Images and Related Material, London 1995. Auction catalogue May 4, 1995. Soft cover 27 x 21 cm. 94 pages with 340 lots.

Early photography:
Lots 23-35: India & Far East
Lots 36-40: North & South America
Lots 51-55(pages 22-31): Louis de Clerq(his 6 albums, see below) 
"Louis-Constantine-Henri-Francois Xavier De Clercq was born on Christmas Day in 1836. Through family influence he became a courier for Napoleon III during the Italian campaigns in early 1859.
Noted archeologist and a friend of De Clercq's brother-in-law the marquis Melchior de Vogue and Emmanuel-Guillaume Rey, an historian of Crusader Castles, were to play major roles in this life change. Melchior de Vogue suggested that Rey hire the young De Clercq as Rey's assistant on an expedition to Syria and Asia Minor that was being commissioned by the French Ministry of Public Instruction. De Clercq joined the expedition in August and remained with Rey until December 5, 1859.Part of the reason for Rey's hiring of De Clercq apparently stemmed from the young man's ability with a camera. According to Rey's notes, "his experience and success as a photographer promised that I would have in him a useful assistant." 
Oddly enough, little is actually known about De Clercq's early photographic training and experience. Through the recent discovery of De Clercq's waxed paper negatives, or calotypes, we may now surmise that photographer Gustave Le Gray's teachings may have been influential on De Clercq, either before or during his journeys. De Clercq's use of waxed paper negatives (calotypes) was probably due to the influence or even direct suggestion of Le Gray, who had perfected and registered several waxed paper processes in France before he left for Syria and Egypt in the 1860s himself. In 1861, De Clercq wound up publishing some 222 photographs in six volumes: I. Picturesque views of the cities and monuments of Syria; II. Castles in Syria at the time of the Crusades; III. Views of Jerusalem and of the Holy Places in Palestine; IV. The Stations of the Cross in Jerusalem; V. Monuments and picturesque sites in Egypt; VI. Voyage in Spain, views and picturesque monuments. He exhibited photographs from these sets almost immediately at the 4th Exhibition of the SFP (Societe Francaise de Photographie) in Paris, even though he was apparently not a member at the time.Although he self-published these volumes in a reported edition of 50, only about a dozen copies--both intact and broken--are known to have survived. Most of these copies are in public institutions.
De Clercq died in his hometown of Oignies on December 27, 1901."

The J.W.Henderson col. of Japanese photographs

The J.W.Henderson col. of Japanese photographs




Japan, oude fotografie

NEWMAN, D., The J.W.Henderson collection of Japanese photographs formed 1864-1876, New York 2000. Catalogue of an exhibition held by Hazlitt, Gooden and Fox. Soft cover 29,5 x 21 cm. 40 pag. met 75 foto's.

CONTENT:
Sales catalogue of an exhibition held by Hazlitt, Gooden and Fox.

After 1854, when a Treaty of Peace and Amity was signed between Japan and the United States, foreign businessmen began to arrive in the once-sequestered island nation. Among them was a bank official from South Australia named John W. Henderson. He stayed in Japan for more than a decade and was interested enough in what he saw to collect photographs by professionals like Felice A. Beato, who had earlier worked in China and India. Henderson's cache of souvenir pictures, passed down through his family.
 
Some of the 75 photographs are of standard attractions like the Great Buddha at Kamakura; others are of Japanese ''types,'' from priests to labourers to geishas. Most interesting, though, is how the collection reveals an Asian culture on the edge of change. Pictures of Shinto shrines alternate with those of Western commercial buildings. Portraits of samurai hang near those of the Kobe Rowing Club, to which Henderson belonged. A shot of the severed head of a Japanese man executed for the assassination of British Army officers brings a range of social tensions to the fore. 
In short, Henderson's pictures document a world that existed before a tourist industry romanticized it, and global politics coarsened it.
