Role of the Middle East in the Development of Photography

Dr Luke Gartlan, of the School of Art History, has co-edited, with Ali Behdad, the volume Photography’s Orientalism: New Essays on Colonial Representation. This publication is part of the Getty Research Institute’s ‘Issues & Debates’ Series. In addition to the co-authored Introduction, he contributed the article ‘Dandies on the Pyramids: Photography and German-Speaking Artists in Cairo’. The book explores European and non-European photography in the Middle East and India and how it influenced the development of photography generally.
