U ovoj seriji postova o velikim fotografima beograda posle priče o Anastasu Jovanoviću storija o Chusseau-Flaviens.
Little is known about Chusseau-Flaviens beyond what we can deduce from this substantial body of work itself. Chusseau-Flaviens' by-line can be found along-side illustrations in French, German, and Belgian newspapers of the 1910s era. He seems to have been an early free-lance photojournalist able to travel and gain access to various European royalty, armies, and political rallies. Since those images credited to Chusseau-Flaviens in period publications do not match negatives at GEH, it is clear that the GEH holdings do not represent his entire production. Holdings at GEH include work from England, Romania, Turkey, Egypt, Spain, Germany, Norway, and Russia, among others.
Chusseau-Flaviens acquired work by other photographers which he pinned to a copy board and annotated for retrieval in the same style used on his own original negatives. He often includes the name of the photographer in the annotations in French along the edge of the glass negative. In this manner, his offerings also included New Zealand, Japan and other areas to which he may not have travelled in person. Conspicuous in its absence is any coverage of France. This is another reason to suspect that the GEH holdings are incomplete.
Note: The digital images presented here were generated at the Tapehouse in New York City from 35mm half-frames (motion picture format) filmed in the 1980s from the original negatives at GEH. They were previously published on GEH's first videodisc in 1987.
