Vignes accompanied the Duc de Luynes an archaeologist, numismatist and art collector on a trip to Lebanon and Palestine in 1864, despite of or because of his passionate amateur status as a photographer. He took calotypes and collodion negatives to record key places. Upon his return to France the Duc gave the negatives to Charles Negre for printing.
