The volume explores works that, in the nineteenth century, shared a common object, non-literary photography. Writings by writers, historians and critics contributed directly or indirectly to questioning this problematic encounter. Around Maxime Du Camp and his Egypt, Nubia, Palestine and Syria – the first illustrated French book of photographs – is an intellectual field that deserves to be identified. Crucible for a “literary” reflection on photography, this volume imposes a new light on well-known literary works.
