We would welcome any further information on this photographer and the whereabouts of any surviving photographs.
"...the son of a wealthy family from Geneva that was acquainted with Camille Corot (who visited them, when in Geneva), and a friend of Barthélemy Menn (1815 - 1893). Menn was a pupil of Ingres and a Swiss friend of Corot (from the Baud Bovy-circle). No photographic work by Darier is known to me, only references in Menn‘s letters and in some publications on Menn from 1911." [Marc Fehlmann - firstname.lastname@example.org, 24 Feb 2006]
