Description
Photographs of the architecture and landscapes of Naples and nearby towns and islands, probably produced between 1890 and 1909 by Edizioni Brogi, the photography studio directed by Carlo Brogi and his uncle, Alfredo Brogi.
Background
Italian photographer. Carlo Brogi, son of the architectural and landscape photographer, Giacomo Brogi, in association with his uncle, Alfredo Brogi, continued to manage his father's studio after his death in 1881, under the trade name "Edizioni Brogi." They specialized in photos of artwork of the masters, and between 1893 and 1902, issued three catalogs of photographs of frescoes, mosaics, and drawings. During this period, they also revisited Naples and Pompeii, creating new catalogs of photos. Carlo Brogi was an active member of the Società Fotografica Italiana, and promoter of the profession, vigorously advocating throughout his lifetime for the adoption of copyright protection of photographs.
