Mishon, A. and A.K. Engel.
A. Mishon, of French origin, had his studio in Mikhailovski Street (now known as Aziz Aliyev Street) in Baku. Between 1879 and 1905 he made his living photographing Baku and its environs, including the developing oil industry. This group of views, the majority of which feature the leading monuments of the area, also include one or two references to the changing industrial landscape.
Mishon was one of the members of a circle of photographic scientists and enthusiasts in Baku. In 1898 he used the newly invented Lumière camera to make newsreels documenting local events. The films were later shown at the International Exhibition in Paris.
