LOUIS-CAMILLE D'OLIVIER, 1827-after 1870
One does not know large thing of the life of this
photographer who would have been born about 1815.
He was the pupil in painting of Leon Coigniet and undoubtedly the friend
and admirateur of Gouin which led it to discover photography.
He created a "Photographic Company" based to the 18, street
of the Seedbed in 1853 and produced many stereotypes over one five years
He started with wet collodion on glass to carry out his academies skilfully
put in scene at the manner of the painters of his time.
Numbering its stéréoscopies which it often drew on a
delicately colored frozen papyrus, it signed some of them with a small
olive branch in the angle lower right of the image of right-hand side.
Its name fell into the lapse of memory after 1857.
Today, its images, which testify to a certain refinement in the installations,
are very required collectors.
