Description

J. Pascal Sebah had started his business in 1857 by opening the El Chark plant (Arabic motto which means "East") in Constantinople, together with Antoine Laroche, in the so-called "Avenue des Photographs", the Grande Rue de Péra, at number 439 next to the Russian embassy. The atelier specialized in oriental costumes, a trend in great demand by European travelers of the time, and in views, taking up some of the most representative monuments, architecture and places of the capital. Sebah's name appeared in various exhibitions, from the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1867 to those of the Société Française de Photographie, of which he was a member, in 1869 and 1870. In 1873 he also opened a studio in Cairo and in the same year he was awarded at the 'Universal Exhibition in Vienna where, by now the sultan's official photographer, he presented an album of 42 photographs, entitled Les Costumes populaires de la Turquie en 1873, dedicated to popular "types", also widespread in the production of other photographic ateliers, such as the bearer of water, the ragman, the dervishes. Sebah's subjects are rendered without excessive artifice, given by accessories or painted backdrops. In his catalogs the views of Egypt included the tombs of the Mamluks, the pyramids, the citadel of Aswan, the temple of Abu Simbel, the valley of the Kings and all the places of major archaeological interest. For these images he was awarded at the Philadelphia Exposition of 1876 and at the Paris Exposition of 1878.
