Firm counting as lead photographer Jean Pierre Harlingue - Rougier (° Paris [F], 1827; + Paris [F], 23.1.1894). Opened on 21.5.1864. A former operator of Ghémar’s, he had received an award: Brussels, 1861 ("photographer operator" at Ghémar’s studio, being then 34 years old). In Tournai in the summer of 1862, he published his opinions on the correct tones for photographs (Le Courrier de l'Escaut, 26.6.1862). During the same stay, he imparted his skills to Gytier Frères (see entry for Guillaume Gytier), when Harlingue was described as "decorated by H.M. King Leopold, operator with Messrs Ghémar Frères, photographers to the King" (Le Courrier de l'Escaut, 31.8.1862). About 1868, Ghémar answered a letter from Nadar: "Harlingue left Brussels more than four years ago. He was an excellent operator during that time. I don't know where he has gone, nor what has become of him since. It's up to you to obtain information in Paris, as a precautionary measure". In another letter to Nadar, also undated, Ghémar recalls: "Three years ago, my entire staff conspired to sink us by setting up a studio just opposite". Harlingue's continued career as a photographer in Paris remains undocumented and his death certificate gave his occupation as servant.
