Images of British Ceylon. 19th Century Photog. of Sri Lanka




Early photography Ceylon/Sri Lanka

RAHEEM, I. & THOMÉ, P. C., Images of British Ceylon. Nineteenth Century Photography of Sri Lanka, Singapore 2000(publ.: Times Edition // ISBN: 9789812047786). Hard cover 26,5 x 29 cm.[oblong]. 155 pages with around 200 photographs. Dedication on endpaper.Good copy.
"The publication of Images of Britsh Ceylon is a landmark event in the history of photography in the Indian subcontinent. It rather suddenly opens the door on the rich tradition of photography that flourished here early in the birth of the medium. The authors marshall page after page of fresh facts and stories, unveiled against larger British Ceylonese social and economic contexts.
Above all, they focus on the great photographers and firms who easily match the traditional masters of British Indian photography: Skeen & Co., Charles Scowen, Plate & Co., the Andres, Frederich Fiebig and others. The book introduces such unknown artists as Madame Del Tufo, whose lush photographs of bedrooms and kitchens illuminate portions of the Raj rarely photographed. Ismeth Raheem and Percy Colin-Thome have laid the groundwork for many future studies."

JAPAN in early photographs Aimé Hubert Collection

JAPAN in early photographs Aimé Hubert Collection




Neuchatel museum of Ethnography

MAYOR, G. & TANI, A.(eds), JAPAN in early photographs. The Aimé Humbert Collection at the Museum of Ethnography, Neuchâtel,  Neuchâtel 2018. Hard cover 29,5 x 22,5 cm. 291 pages with 219 photographs and illustrations.
"Photographs taken in Japan between the late Edo and early Meiji periods that found their way overseas played a major role in forming Westerners’ image of Japan. Among these collections, the pictures gathered by the Swiss diplomat Aimé Humbert (1819–1900) in the 1860s were crucial in building lasting representations of the island nation: many of these, mainly collected in 1863/64 during a sojourn in Yokohama and Edo, were used as sources for the well-known and largely distributed engravings of his famous book Le Japon illustré, published in Paris in 1870. Belonging to the collection of the MEN, these beautiful and well-preserved photographs are published here for the first time. Presented by Japanese and Swiss scholars before the narrative backdrop of their acquisition and application by foreigners, they offer a striking view on a lost world."

The Journey of

The Journey of "A good type"




Japan early photography

ODO,D., The Journey of "A good type", Cambridge(USA) 2015. Hard cover 26 x 22 cm. 125 pages with around 100 photographs.
"When Japan opened its doors to the West in the 1860s, delicately hand-tinted photographic prints of Japanese people and landscapes were among its earliest and most popular exports. Renowned European photographers Raimund von Stillfried and Felice Beato established studios in Japan in the 1860s; the work was soon taken up by their Japanese protégés and successors Uchida Kuichi, Kusakabe Kimbei, and others. Hundreds of these photographs, collected by travelers from the Boston area, were eventually donated to Harvard’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, where they were archived for their ethnographic content and as scientific evidence of an “exotic” culture.
In this elegant volume, visual anthropologist David Odo examines the Peabody’s collection of Japanese photographs and the ways in which such objects were produced, acquired, and circulated in the nineteenth century. His innovative study reveals the images’ shifting and contingent uses—from tourist souvenir to fine art print to anthropological “type” record—were framed by the desires and cultural preconceptions of makers and consumers alike. Understood as both images and objects, the prints embody complex issues of history, culture, representation, and exchange."
