Biography

Félix Bonfils was a French photographer and writer who was active in the Middle East. He was born on 8 March 1831 in Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort and died in Alès in 1885. He and his family moved to Beirut in 1867 where they opened a photographic studio called "Maison Bonfils", which became "F. Bonfils et Cie" in 1878. Bonfils took photographs in Lebanon, Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Greece and Constantinople (now Istanbul). In 1872 he published the album “Architecture Antique” (by Ducher press) after presenting some of his pictures to the Societé Française de Photographie. His work became well known for the tourists that travelled to those countries because they bought their photos as souvenirs. He lately opened another studio in Alès (France). (wikipedia, 2010-08-26)
