A restless traveler and seeker of exotic sights, he roamed throughout the Middle East and north Africa, from Morocco to Turkey. He even traveled as far as India and China, photographing as he went. In 1894, he converted to Islam, and soon thereafter made the pilgrimage to Mecca. He returned with some of the earliest known photographs inside the holy city, which were published in L’Illustration in 1897. Gervais-Courtellemont was one of the first masters of Autochrome, an early color photography process. The long exposure times necessary for the process meant it was only suitable for relatively static scenes.
