Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The album compiled by Abdu Rabbih al-Wahhāb contains photographs of the Maghreb region of North Africa. The first half features views of Algeria and Tunisia, while the second half is devoted to portraits of a variety of North African peoples. These are mainly studio portraits of prostitutes and dancers from various ethnic groups, although some male types, and dignitaries such as the Agha and Califa of Ouargla, are included.
The title page lists a person known as Abdu Rabbih al-Wahhāb as the "author" of the album. This may be a pseudonym or fictitious name.
