(born between 1820 and 1825 circa – 1903 circa)
Information about Beato is scarce and uncertain. Supposedly born between 1820 and 1825, and then becoming a British citizen, he followed his brother Felice to India, where, however, he did not remain for long. In fact, in 1862, he moved to Luxor, in Egypt, where he opened his photography studio.
Between 1870 and 1888, he created numerous images, systematically documenting the ruins of ancient Egyptian civilization.
