Ponti, Carlo (Italian and Swiss architectural photographer, optician, and optical instrument maker, ca. 1823-1893)

Note: Pont was an Italian photographer and optician of Swiss descent. He lived for some years in Paris, France, where he worked with the optician Chauchois and learnt the technique of photography. He moved to Venice, Italy, towards 1852. He began to photograph the city in 1854-1855 and published an album of 160 photographs of Venetian architecture. Ponti published and edited the photographs of Carlo Naya from 1857 to 1868 when a dispute ended the alliance. He collaborated with the photographer Antonio Perini (1830-1879) and the painter and photographer Domenico Bresolin (1813-1899), whose archive he took over in 1864. Ponti photographed Rome, Italy, from 1860 to 1865. Ponti was associated with the Architectural Photographic Association.
