Ghémar, Louis-Joseph
(1819-1873)
   Louis-Joseph Ghémar was born in Lannoy, France, on 8 January 1819. A painter, lithographer, photographer, and publicist, he studied at the Académie royale des Beaux-Arts and established a photo studio in 1855. Ghé-mar acquired fame for his portraits of royal patrons and celebrities and for his lithographic work, which included the works of Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832). His many photos of Brussels present images of the city's urban development and of mid-19th-century society. Ghémar died in Brussels on 11 May 1873.
