Kuwait by the First Photographers
William Facey (au); Gillian Grant (au). Documents the period between 1900 & 1950, which saw Kuwait’s emergence from a vulnerable shaikhdom negotiating a precarious independence among neighboring powers to a nation state with the highest per capita income in the world. It is an outstanding visual record of a crucial time before the centuries-old way of life, centering on pearling, fishing, boat-building & trade by land & sea, was swept away. The Russian, British & German pictures of the early 1900s were followed by a mass of British material as Britain reasserted its hegemony in the Gulf. The pictures are organized by chronology & photographer. Pictures are captioned in detail. An introduction traces the development of photography in the area.
