Félix Bonfils (Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort, March 8 1831- Alès, April 9 1885) was a French photographer. He founded a photographic workshop in 1867 in Beirut, Lebanon, that produced a very large photographic documentation about Egypt and the Middle East from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. These photographs were widely distributed.
