Names:
Born: Jean-Baptiste Emile Colliau 
Dates:  1826 - 1884
 
  
Jean-Baptiste Emile Colliau (1826-1884), aka Eugène Colliau, worked as a civil servant in the French Ministry of Finance before taking up photography in the late 1850's. He learned the wax paper negative process from Gustave Le Gray and exhibited marine views and landscapes, some remarkably similar to Le Gray’s, at the SFP in 1859 and 1861. In 1859 he founded a studio and printing establishment in Montmartre with Costet as a partner from which they published Le Gray’s photographs taken of Giuseppe Garibaldi’s Palermo Campaign in 1860, including his well-known portrait of Garibaldi himself.
