(Getty, 18 March 2021)
Louis-Antoine Froissart was the photographer for the city of Lyon, France, with a studio at Rue Merciere 22. Although he was known to have been active in the 1850s, scholars know little more about his life. As the city's official photographer, he worked principally in a documentary capacity, photographing scenes and events of municipal interest. Froissart is best known for documenting the disastrous Rhône River flood at Lyon in 1856. He made salt prints, albumen prints, and stereographs.
