Very nice vintage albumen print depicting 4 Bedouins on their donkeys, Egypt.
The print is framed under a passe-partout with a crystal protection sheet, very good shades of black and contrast leaning towards sepia.
Titled and signed on the bottom of the image (mostly erased).
Label on the back with the references of the work.
Shipped with its passe-partout.
Exceptional sale of 50 photographs from a private collection, all protected under a passe-partout, all in exceptional condition and has been protected from light to prevent degradation of the photographs.
The Zangaki brothers were two Greek photographers, active in 1870-1875 and 1880-1899, specialising in historical scenes and ancient Egypt. They occasionally worked with Hippolyte Arnoux, a French photographer who lived in Port-Said.
They were located in Port-Said and Cairo, and their photographs are very popular among collectors for their expressive liveliness, very representative of the daily lives of Egyptians.
