Early photographs of Egypt

Don McCullin Selects

Thanks to David Petersen for this link, which shows some excellent early photographs of Egypt and elsewhere. The one on the right is a Francis Frith photograph of Kom Ombo.

On a recent visit to the National Media Museum, to coincide with the opening of a major exhibition of his work, Don made a personal selection of photographs from the museum's collection . . . revealing how these sites were recorded by earlier photographers such as Francis Frith and Maxime Du Camp.
