Maxime Du Camp
Letter from Maxime Du Camp
1880, 4 March
Bazar Nadar / Wouter Lambrechts
He writes about a portrait photograph of him and lies about the existence of it: “Ma photographie n’a jamais été faite...”.
The writer was a pioneer in photographic history. In 1880 he was was elected a member of the Académie française. Because of this occasion his portrait was asked in a previous letter.
In this letter he is answering (wrongly) that his portrait doesn't exist.
