Jean Sébah was a photographer active in Egypt, Turkey, and the Levant during the last quarter of the nineteenth and first quarter of the twentieth centuries. In 1888, he inherited a photography business begun by his father, Pascal Sébah, and partnered with Policarpe Joaillier to form the studio known as Sébah and Joaillier.
