Following on from "Ethiopia Engraved", an illustrated book of engraving by foreign travellers from 1681 to 1900, "Ethiopia Photographed" covers the inception of photography in the country up until the Italian Fascist invasion in 1936. The people, terrain, buildings and rulers of Ethiopia - such as the Emperor Menelik and the Emperor Haile Selassie - make it a highly photogenic country, as this illustrated book reveals. Situated in lofty, often inaccessible mountains between the Red Sea and the Blue Nile, and extending far into the Horn of Africa, it is a complex and mysterious country which has always exercised an extraordinary fascination for the outside world. The book begins with an introduction which gives a brief history of Ethiopia in this period, and describes the role of photography in this time. Through the rich captured visuals in "Ethiopia Photographed", the reader may pay witness to many personalities and places not previously seen and, in many cases, now lost for all time but for the photographic memories compiled here.
