I would like to share a discovery with you, the helpful members of this forum, and I would like to have your thoughts on it. <p> I have come across photographs by Emile Frechon, a French photographer who photographed in Algeria around the 1900s. I know that he photographed in France, too, but I am most interested in his photographs of Algeria. <p> I am intrigued by the way in which his photographs seem to glow. I read that he printed with gold, which may account for that fact. I am also intrigued by how otherworldly Algeria and other places look in his photographs; the light looks like a Biblical painting, and seems to be present in every part of the photographs, including the shadows. <p> I have seen only a handful of his photographs on the Internet. Here are a few: <p> http://www.jmcfaber.at/inventory/classic/frechon.htm <p> http://gallery19th21st.free.fr/19e/pages%2019e/pages-images/page1-19e/Frechon02.htm <p> http://www.iphotocentral.com/search/full_image.php?uSID=3142de4f8d59b597454660fd505b85b1&myNum=0&strImg=..%2FPhotos%2FVintageWorks_Images%2FFull%2F3525Frechonboats.JPG&iID=970 . <p> Again, I would like to know what you think of his photographs. If you know mor about him, I would appreciate that, too. <p> Thank you!
