There are quite a number of photographs taken in Egypt that have a signature "H. Bechard" in the negative. Recent research is starting to question who this was. It may be that "Henri Bechard" never existed and H. Bechard" refers to "Hippolyte Bechard" who was the brother of Émile Bechard. "Hippolyte Bechard" never visited Egypt but may have been responsible for printing and/or marketing his brother's Egyptian photographs in France. See: F. Fiorelli, 2013, Viaggio in Oriente: Fotografie dell'Africa a Casa Martelli, (Sillabe).
