Synopsis

A catalogue of an exhibition held at the Centre Historique des Archives Nationales in Paris from 6 November 1996 – 3 February 1997.
Hippolyte Arnoux (active ca. 1860 – ca. 1890) was a French photographer and publisher. During the 1860s, he documented the excavation of the Suez Canal and published the resulting photographs. At the same time, he occasionally worked with the Port Said photographic studio, Adelphoi Zangaki. In the late 1860s, Arnoux was a partner of Antonio Beato.
