An Empire Spanning More Than 600 Years!

The Abdullah Frères also called the Abdullah Brothers were a group of three Ottoman brothers who were photographers during the late Ottoman Empire. These brothers Viçen Abdullahyan, Hovsep Abdullahyan and Kevork Abdullahyan were of Armenian descent and they took pictures of the scenic views, notable individuals and numerous Ottoman Sultans and Statesmen of the Empire.

They were internationally famous during that time and took photographs of almost all notable individuals of that time; high-profile examples include figures like Mark Twain and The Prince of Wales.

Viçen started his career in photography retouching photos for Rabach who was a German Chemist / Photographer. Rabach owned a studio called Rabach’s Photography Studio in Istanbul and Kevork studied art in Venice. Rabach’s Photography Studio was taken over by the Abdullah Brothers on Rabach’s return to Germany in 1858.

The three brothers later opened their own studio called The Abdullah Frères and in 1867 relocated to Pera where they eventually became some of the most famous photographers in the Ottoman Empire.

The Abdullah Frères were in 1863, declared by the then Sultan Abdulaziz as the official court photographers and that made them the photographers of the Palace.  He also awarded them as the outstanding artists of the city and were given Ottoman citizenship because of their successful career.

Looking at the skills and popularity gained by The Abdullah Frères, the Khedive (the title of the viceroy of Egypt under Turkish rule 1867–1914) in Egypt requested them to open a studio in Cairo which The Abdullah Frères did in 1886.

One of the most monumental of all works by The Abdullah Frères is the photographic record of the Ottoman Empire during the realm of Sultan Abdul Hamid II of Turkey who was the last of the Ottoman Emperors.

He was an avid collector and promoter of photography and this project was accomplished with ideas from the Sultan himself and was directed by The Abdullah Frères.

The Sultan wanted this work as a portrait of his empire to show the achievements and improvements of the regime, technological advancement and life at the Imperial Court. The Sultan presented a copy of this to the Library of Congress in 1894. Another similar collection was given to the British Museum which can now be seen in the British Library.

The Abdullah Frères also sold many pictures to tourists through their studios, including scenic views from Egypt and the Middle East. They eventually sold their business to Sébah and Joaillier in 1899 because their later photographs from the Abdullah Frères negatives have the Sébah and Joaillier backstamp.

Viçhen died in 1902 and when Kevork returned to Istanbul after nine years, he discovered that his brothers had sold their shares to Foto Sabah and that the business was not doing very well. Kevork lived a distressed life and died in 1918 while Hovsep died in 1908.

The photographs you see here are dated between 1880 and 1893 and they are a collection of 51 large format albums. Most of the places that you see in these photographs are located in Turkey now and there are some pictures from Iran, Lebanon, Greece amongst others.
