Daguerreotypes by J.-Ph. Girault de Prangey
The French photographer Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey travelled extensively in Europe and the Near East between 1841 and 1850, producing almost a thousand daguerreotypes on the way.
The Musée gruérien in Bulle (Switzerland) rediscovered in 2002 a collection of 61 daguerreotypes by this talented pioneer showing views of Basel, the Jura, Bern and its highlands, Vevey, the Tête-Noire passage in the Valais region, the Mont-Dore ruins in Auvergne and the Mer-de-Glace in Chamonix.
