Galerie Livet in France Exhibits Prints from the Birth of Photography, Mid 19th Century
view the Guardian Weekly’s online slideshow of 11 prints from the photographic exhibit at Galerie Livet. I’ve used this portrait of a Tangier man to illustrate this post because it’s a classic example of how the photographic medium was also used as a tool in the field of “ethnic” studies. The Guardian Weekly article grossly points out how the “sense of empathy is so strong [for the subject] that it quite surpasses conventional ethnic studies.”
