The Orient in Large

A photographic epic in panoramic format

Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, around 1900, the Léon & Lévy studios sent their photographic operators around the world. They travelled with their bulky photographic cameras using imposing 16 x 42 cm glass plates. These unusual dimensions allow them to obtain horizontal and vertical panoramic views of exceptional quality.
The Roger-Viollet Gallery exhibits, for the first time, 50 photographs in limited edition, from this unique collection.
