Pioneer photography from the [19th c.] Dutch Indies

The Prentenkabinet / Study and Documentation Centre for Photography
(SDCF), University Library of Leiden, The Netherlands.

"Soon after the invention of photography in 1839, a number of
photographers set out for the remote colony of the Dutch Indies.
Commissioned by the Dutch government and various historical
societies, they documented the Indonesian treasures photographically.
These pioneer photographers didn't have the best of luck. The damp,
warm climate and their customers' high expectations frequently led to
Javanese temples and other antiquities were photographed by the
photographers Schaefer, Cephas and Van Kinsbergen. The photographer
Kleingrothe devoted special attention to tropical agriculture.
Lastly, Nieuwenhuis concentrated on the indigenous population,
showing the various different aspects of their culture.
The collection contains 4500 photographs pertaining to the former
Dutch Indies in the nineteenth and early twentieth century.
Professional photographers took pictures of a huge variety of
subjects. The many travel and family albums tell mostly of "tempo
dulu", the high days of colonialism. Worth mentioning is the album
published on the occasion of the International Colonial Exhibition in
Paris in 1931."
