Views of Luxembourg and the 'Orient' Francis Frith and Victorian Photography
The National Library of Luxembourg (BnL) presents two very different sceneries photographed in the 19th century related to Francis Frith: the picturesque neighbourhoods of Luxembourg, a small country in Europe, and the grand archaeological sites in the mysterious distant ‘Orient’. These places were captured by the new medium of the time, photography, which according to Francis Frith portrays the world truthfully. His emphasis on the truthfulness of photography, however, ignores the subjectivity involved in the decision of what to shoot.
