This documentary exhibition featured a series of stills taken between 1891 and 1895 by a photographer who remains unknown but who captured with great skill the life of everyday Egyptians. The study was realised mostly in the Egyptian lowlands, around Cairo, Guizeh, in the Fayoum and South of Cairo.

The documentary exhibition also displayed two large architectural drawings by Ruprich-Robert and Hittorf.
