Distant Fronts, In Cameroon - A Farewell to Colonel Brisset, 1917

EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures a poignant moment in the colonial history of Cameroon during the First World War. The image shows two sultans and their retinue bidding farewell to Colonel Brisset as he prepares to depart for France, having completed the military conquest of Cameroon and the moral conquest of its native people. Colonel Brisset, dressed in military uniform, stands at the center of the photograph, with his successor, Major Chretien, to his left. The two sultans, dressed in traditional African garb, are seated on ornate thrones, surrounded by their retinue, who are also dressed in colorful African clothing. The scene is further enlivened by the presence of horses and riders, as well as parasols held aloft to shield the dignitaries from the sun. The photograph is a testament to the changing dynamics of power and authority in Cameroon during this period. The colonial conquest brought about significant transitions, both military and cultural, and this image captures the essence of that transformation. The photograph is from "L'Album de la Guerre 1914-1919, Volume 2" published by L'Illustration, Paris, in 1924. It is a powerful reminder of the complex interplay of politics, culture, and history during a pivotal moment in African colonialism.
