...the Eugène Cottard collection, comprised of 1,229 images captured by Cottard himself during the time he spent in Greater Syria. Eugène Cottard was a French doctor. Born in Annecy, France in 1873, he moved to modern-day Lebanon in 1908 to work as a surgeon. Cottard's images document the evolution of social life and the industrial developments over the span of forty critical years in the history of the country and the region. Unlike many such pictures taken at the time, the images in this collection shy away from romanticising the local landscape or fetishising the provincial residents and communities.
His collection is held by the Arab Image Foundation.
