Herman Carl / Charles, ° 8.8.1836; + 2.4.1902. Took a series of 19 views of Ypres and its monuments, some in the collections of the municipal museum. During a stay lasting until at least November 1868, Biskeborn played an active part in community life.

CV dated 6.7.1868 with an address in Vienna; CV 1869 ca: 9, Rue d'Esquermoise (corner of Grand Place), Lille [F]. Note that Lucien Frobert (see that name) occupied this studio in the 1870s. Biskeborn then moved on to the UK and was recorded in London - Uxbridge on 19.7.1869. He married in Dover on 18.8.1870 and thereafter operated mainly on the south coast of England. Biskeborn was recorded as a studio photographer in Chatham in 1871 and 1875, Bath in 1877 and then in Southsea later in the 1870s where a CV states “Photographic artist from Vienna”.
Biskeborn returned briefly to Belgium where he was recorded as a photographer aged 48 living in Liège, Boulevard d’Avroy, 18 on the occasion of the birth of a son on 19.7.1885. Other children were born when he was operating in Turin [I] on 8.5.1887, in Nice [F] on 14.4.1890 and Hanover [D] on 24.8.1898.
