Revealing the Holy Land: The Photographic Exploration of Palestine
by Nitza Rosovsky
Publisher's Description
For a timeless moment, between the invention of photography and before the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the world's travelling photographers--including Francis Frith, Felix Beato, and Louis De Clerq--preserved a record of the Holy Land as it appeared stretching backward towards antiquity. The careful observer can see layers of history in these astoundingly beautiful photographs, but there is also a sense of awe. Kathleen Stewart Howe's essay provides critical and historical background.
