About Benjamin Mulock
Benjamin Mulock is acclaimed in Brazil as one of the finest landscape photographers of the 19th century. He was in Bahia from November 1, 1859 until April 1852, photographing the works of the Bahia & São Francisco Railway Company. In 1860, he presented Emperor Pedro II with an album of his photographs of the city of Salvador - then called Bahia. Those photos are now housed in Brazil's National Library in Rio de Janeiro, and for many years, they were believed to be the only existing examples of Mulock's work.
