Researched from a diverse and extensive source materials (including directories, documents in city archives, newspapers, fieldnotes, postcards, etc.) Unseen Siam. Early Photography 1860-1910 reveals the careers of 15 lesser-unknown early photographers who worked in Siam, many of whom became court photographers to the then ruling King of Siam. Their work was not only restricted to their photographic cartes-de-visite, as is usually the case, but also large sized images from attributable albums and portfolios. Each reproduced photograph is fully catalogued and in many cases discloses the name of the photographer of some, otherwise well-known images for the first time.
