Activity

1843 */ Tournai, Hôtel du Petit Ménage
Head of the first known family of Itinerant daguerreotypists. He passed through Tournai in July 1843. "He operates without sunlight and in a few seconds".
1844 */ Liège, Hôtel de l'Europe
He announces a week’s absence: he has to stay in Paris to present a discovery to the "Académie des Sciences et des Beaux-Arts" (Journal de Liège, 6-7.4.1844). In fact, he departed for the Netherlands where he was recorded in no fewer than six towns just in 1844: Nijmegen, Den Bosch, Arnhem, Utrecht, Zwolle and Amsterdam. He pursued his energetically itinerant career within the Netherlands until 1851.
