In 1886, Edouard Foà was hired by the Marseilles-based colonial trading company of Mante, Régis et Borelli to manage a trading post in Porto-Novo, Dahomey. From 1886 to 1890, Foà explored the French colony of Dahomey (now known as Benin) and the neighboring countries around the Gulf of Guinea. The photographs in albums 1 and 2 were taken during these four years. Album 1 (102 photoprints) covers the modern nations of Benin, Ghana, Togo and Sierra Leone, and also contains ten images of the Canary Islands and Madeira. Album 2 (56 photoprints) includes Benin, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Congo, Angola, Senegal, Liberia and Ghana. Albums 1 and 2 contain ethnographic portraits, views of colonial institutions and scenes of daily life in West Africa

The four photographs document cultural practices and activities in Algeria, Java and Thailand, or provide evidence of the colonial presence in these countries. There are two images from Java: a view of a shadow puppet performance by Woodbury & Page (1862), taken from the unusual vantage point of the performers' side of the puppet screen, and showing the puppeteer and orchestra; and a photograph by H. Salzwedel captioned "Huis van de Resident, Surabaya" (ca. 1870), depicting two men in western dress standing before an official residence in Surabaya, Java. A photograph of a Thai orchestra, inscribed on the verso "Orchestre Siamois" (ca. 1880), is by an anonymous photographer. Also by an unknown photographer is an image of a group of Algerian women spinning wool and weaving (ca. 1880)
