1940 - 1950s
Noubar’s studio operated in the 1940-50s in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan. In its kind it was very similar to other Egyptian commercial photography institutions and produced portraits for family and business purposes. Stylistically, Noubar's photographs also relied on the standard conventions popularized by the major studios in Cairo and Alexandria, but are generally more relaxed and natural in their lighting scheme and design. Like other Armenian photographers from Sudan, Noubar’s portraits are important historical testaments of the cultural and social developments and the modernization processes in that region. Other biographical details regarding this photographer have not come to light.
