Our limited-edition collection is a treasure for art connoisseurs, offering a rare opportunity to own a piece of history captured through the lens of the legendary master. These extraordinary pieces serve as both distinguished decorations and sophisticated gifts. Paul Nadar (1856 - 1939), the son of Gaspard-Felix Tournachon who was known in history as Nadar and a legend during his lifetime, was the greatest photographer of the 19th century. Paul Nadar, inherited his father's business and became a brilliant portrait photographer under his direction. In 1890, the "International Company of Sleeping Cars and Famous European Expresses" organized a trip to Transcaucasia and Russian Turkestan. Paul Nadar was invited to take part in this expedition as a photographer. On August 28, 1890, at the Gare de l'Orient in Paris, Nadar begins this unusual journey. On the 2nd of September he arrives in Constantinople. Fascinated by the beauty of the city, Nadar photographs it extensively. After a couple of days the journey continues, Nadar crosses the Black Sea, disembarks in the port of Batum, from where he goes to Tiflis. From Tiflis the photographer's way lies to Baku... And then across the Caspian Sea to the then starting point of the Trans-Caspian railway to the city of Uzun-Ada. Further the way of the expedition lies in Central Asia. Mosques, mausoleums, enchanting landscapes, crowds in bazaars, falconry, desert sands, oil fields, modern types of people and people who still adhere to the ancient way of life - everything becomes the object of his interest. More than a thousand pictures became the result of the journey, which combined curiosity and human skill, the safety and speed of railroads and the relative ease of the most modern photographic equipment of that time. His photographs, full of life and feelings, remain for us as testimonies of life scenes and views of that time.
