In recent years Felice Beato (1832-1909) has come to be recognized as one of the major photographers of the nineteenth century, yet until now there has been no general survey of his singular life and work. Born in Venice, Italy, Beato came of age in the Ottoman capital of Constantinople. As a young apprentice in 1856, he photographed the sites of the Crimean War, thereby launching a long and remarkably adventurous career. Over the next half century he would follow in the wake of the British Empire: Egypt, Palestine, and Syria; India, where he photographed the aftermath of the Indian Mutiny; and China, where he chronicled the Second Opium War. He spent some thirty years in Japan and Burma, where he was among the first commercial photographers at the time that these countries were starting to open to the West. The text includes an engaging narrative of his life and entrepreneurial career and a thought-provoking essay on Beato and the photography of war. There is a generous selection of his photographs, including panoramas and hand-colored Japanese studies, along with captivating period ephemera, lithographs based on his work, and humorous caricatures of the artist

2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En 1863, moins de dix ans après l'ouverture du Japon à l'Occident, obtenue par le commodore Perry, Felice Beato - déjà rendu célèbre par ses reportages sur la guerre de Crimée (1855), la révolte des Cipayes (1857) et la seconde guerre de l'Opium (1860) - rejoint à Yokohama son compatriote Charles Wirgam, avec lequel il fonde une société de photographes. Les vues du Japon qu'il rassemble dans ses deux albums publiés en 1868, Native types et Views of Japan, créent un choc pour le public occidental et contribuent grandement à la fascination durable qu'exercera sur lui cette civilisation ainsi révélée. 0Inspiré par la peinture et l'estampe japonaises, Beato colorie à la main, délicatement, ses épreuves, à la fois par souci de vérité du détail et pour rendre plus sensible l'harmonie et la poésie, jusque-là inédites, des lieux, des rites et des gens. D'un format in-folio et d'une qualité plastique exceptionnels, le livre fait la part belle aux artistes qui évoquent la douceur ineffable des paysages, naturels ou composés
