Lehnert & Landrock was a photographic studio run by Rudolf Franz Lehnert (1878-1948) and Ernst Heinrich Landrock (1878-1966) active in Tunisia and Egypt in the early 20th century, noted for producing Orientalist images. Rudolf Franz Lehnert and Ernst Heinrich Landrock produced images of North African people, landscapes, and architecture for a primarily European audience. These images were mainly distributed in monographs, though also as original prints, photogravures, and lithographic postcards. (Source: Wikipedia).
