Rudolf Lehnert (1878-1948), French, and Ernst Landrock (1878 - 1966), German, were two photographers who became partners in order to take over the studio of photographer J. André Garrigues, from 1904 to 1914 in Tunis (Tunisia). Their work is one of the most influential for Tunisia from the late 19th and early 20th century.
