Superb photograph representing the tombs of the Mamluks (Caliphs) of Cairo, Egypt.
Very high quality photograph which deserves to be framed, splendid gradient of grey and very good contrast, very clean, no rubbing, no foxing.
Size: 26 x 21 cm.
The photograph is captioned and signed at the bottom left and right, with annotations in the negative.
Pascal Sebah (1823-1886) was a French photographer of Syrian origin who settled in Constantinople (Turkey) to open a photographic studio in 1857, before opening a second one in Cairo in the 1870s. His son, Jean Pascal Sebah, took up photography by partnering with French photographer, Polycarpe Joaillier, in particular.
