The Fototeca de Panama honors Carlos Endara for the 1st edition of Paris Photo’s new Online Viewing Room with an online exhibition of the work of Carlos Endara in which he documented the famous construction of the Panama Canal, known locally as the French Canal (1876 - 1904). The photos were taken from 1887 to 1904, and document not only the progress of the construction, but also the settlement of the French emigration, including in the Caribbean.
