Résumé :

Did the first snapshots of writers taken in their daily lives at the end of the 19th century change the image that readers had of literary activity ? We attempt to answer this question using the amateur snapshots taken by Count Giuseppe Primoli (1851-1927). In order to decipher these seemingly innocuous images, four reading grids are proposed : biographical, worldly, media and aesthetic. The aim is also to understand how photographs that were rarely published during the author's lifetime were nevertheless able to circulate and influence people's minds.
