dc.description.abstract When William Ellis, missionary and photographer, was sent to Madagascar in the mid-nineteenth century by the London Missionary Society (LMS), he was serving both God and Science. In these early days of photography, the technology was spreading rapidly throughout the European empires, and images such as Ellis', along with all the cargo of scientific artefacts and writings, had the spectacular effect, in Europe, of reporting back on other peoples encountered.
