Description

The Portrait Photography of Leandro Preziosi (1830-1860)

Leandro Preziosi, a highly competent pioneer camera artist, was for fashion in Malta in the nineteenth century what Antoine Favray was for it in the eighteenth – without the benefit of colour. He recorded with loving precision what was indigenous in clothing, and what was cosmopolitan.

His full-figure portraits immortalised the clothes of the sitters as an integral part of their persona.
