Activity

1887 Constantine [ALG]
Georges Philippe Clément Marie, ° 8.11.1859; + 24.2.1930. Sometimes transcribed "Denoter". Son of the orientalist painter David de Noter (1818 - 1892) who moved to Algeria with his family reportedly in 1867. Georges de Noter was recorded as a photographer when he acquired French nationality in Algeria. Since no studio there is recorded in his name, de Noter may have worked as an operator or studio assistant. Appears to have collaborated with his brother "Albert" Clément David Jean Marie (° Brussels - Schaerbeek, 22.5.1858; + 1924) at an unspecified date prior to 1887.
1893 - 1903 Bône [ALG]
Recorded as a photographer here in May 1893 and again in November 1895 when it was reported he was planning to apply to have his name changed to Berthomier, the name of his former benefactor and studio owner (Le Réveil bônois, 27.11.1895). In August 1903, De Noter was recorded as an operator for Maison Berthomier. Jules Berthomier (° Viry-Châtillon [Essone, F], 31.10.1830; + Paris [F], 16.1.1893) had studios in both Constantine and Bône, so it is entirely possible that De Noter was already operating for him in Constantine in 1887 onwards.
1908 Bône [ALG], Rue du 4 septembre, 17
In partnership with L. Robledo; successors of "Photographie Berthomier". They published a series of postcards featuring the "Compagnie des phosphates du Dyr" in Morocco.
