Giacomo Brogi (1822–1881), an Italian engraver based in Florence, became one of the most renowned photographers of that city. He learned photography from the scientist Tito Puliti and in 1856 opened a studio with an unknown partner. In 1859 or 1860 he established his own studio, specializing at first in portrait photography. Brogi soon began to produce views and other subjects, and in 1863 he published his first catalog. His business eventually expanded to include studios and associates throughout Italy. Brogi was a founder and the first vice president of the Italian Photographic Society.

      - Some of the photographers featured, such as James Robertson, Felix Bonfils and Wilhelm Hammerschmidt, settled and established studios in Istanbul, Beirut or Cairo, to deal directly with the increasing numbers of travellers to the area. Other photographers, like Francis Frith, Frank Mason Good, Giacomo Brogi and Francis Bedford, undertook extensive and laborious expeditions to acquire their negatives, which they sold to the home market from catalogues, or, in the case of the Italian Brogi and the English Bedford, published in magnificent albums-----
