In 1853, when John Beasley Greene first visited Egypt with his camera, archaeology and photography were still very new.
Over the course of his exceptionally brief career—he died at the age of 24—Greene made an extraordinary body of pictures that advanced both archaeology and photography and continues to offer insight into the central concerns that shaped the two fields.
