Prior to photography, these prints in the sunny streets of Tunisia, Fotohromiju (colored lithograph) was initiated by Swiss Publisher in the 1880's in which monochrome images are given realistic colors and shades using with the cover plates from lithographic limestone of the photosensitive emulsion. The process begins with the cover plates from lithographic limestone of the photosensitive emulsion exposed from photo negatives in the sun for a few hours. The emulsion hardened immediately in proportion to the shades of the image. More soft emulsion fragments were disposed of with solvent, and the stone held the lithograph image.

Photographer carefully outlined particular colors in the photo according to his records for preparing separate lithographic stones for each color in the final image. Often one image used more than a dozen lithographic stones. As a result of a complex and delicate process the images were incredibly colourful with much greater accuracy than conventional painted pictures.
