French writer, journalist and photographer. In his younger years Ducamp was also active in politics and took part in the Revolution of 1848 (known in some countries as the Spring of Nations).
Ducamp travelled several times to Egypt and in 1849 joined the Nile expedition with his best friend Gustave Flaubert. During these travels, between 1844 and 1851, he wrote most of his novels and poems but he became famous for his photographic coverage. His travel books were among the first to be illustrated with photographs.
