New Flickr set - early photographs of Rio de Janeiro

We’ve added a new album to our Flickr site: a collection of eight albumen prints of photographs from Marc Ferrez, the greatest photographer to emerge from Brazil in the late-nineteenth century. Educated in Paris, Ferrez is best-known for his panoramic views of the city of Rio de Janeiro and its surrounding landscapes, documenting the city’s transition into modernity. In his day, his work was considered new and innovative, and found success both in Brazil and in Europe. Now prized for their masterful aesthetic and their historical value, Ferrez’s photographs continue to find success around the world.
