A Biographical Dictionary of 19th Century Photographers in South and South-East Asia

Amateur, India
Graduated from the Ecole Polytechnique in 1844. In 1849, while en route to India, he met Maxime Du Camp in Egypt and taught him the use of Blanquart-Evrard’s wet process (Du Camp had previously been struggling unsuccessfully with Le Gray’s dry waxed paper process).
In India 1849-50.[1] Five of his prints appear as plates 13, 15, 18, 22, and 24 of Blanquard-Evrard’s first published collection L’Album Photographique de l’Artiste et de l’Amateur (1851). A view of the Taj Mahal in the Album Regnault of the French Photographic Society is signed (Delagrange et Lambrecht).[2]
