Contribution to new book on Alfred Raquez

I’ve very proud that my brief contribution to a new book about Alfred Raquez is now available from White Lotus Press.

Raquez was an amazing person: an explorer, writer, photographer, bon vivant, racontuer, and man of enigma. The name is a nome de plume…he died under very mysterious cicrumstances. He was a key documentor of Laos when the place was still a largely untouched backwater of the French empire and yet he is woefully under-studied in history or post-colonial studies departments.

This new publication by White Lotus Press will help to change that…

My own contribution focuses on the postcards Raquez sold at the 1906 Colonial Exposition at Marseille which feature Laotian singers and dancers and were souvenir illustrations of a show of Laotian music and dance that he produced.
