Famin is a striking example of a photographer who was little known from exhibitions and press coverage during the 19th century as he mostly produced his work as study aids for artists. Many of Famin's prints, however, were lodged with the Dépôt Légal in Paris from the late 1850s (therefore now in the Bibliothèque Nationale) and show him to be a photographer of rare talent.

Rodin employed a number of photographers over the years to make high quality copies of his works, showing them off to best advantage. According to the web site of the Musée Rodin: 'In 1903, Rodin ended his collaboration with his appointed photographer, Eugène Druet, who was about to open an art gallery. The sculptor began looking for a professional photographer who could cope with the growing demand for reproductions of his work.

The photography publisher Jacques-Ernest Bulloz met all his requirements : a good technician and rigorous manager, he signed an exclusive contract with Rodin on 5 May 1903, which lasted until the artist’s death 15 years later. Bulloz not only worked as a photographer for the sculptor, but also gradually took charge of all the paperwork concerning the distribution of photographs of Rodin’s oeuvre, even those taken by other photographers, such as Haweis and Coles... He worked methodically and laid the foundations of photographic conventions related to museum exhibits that are still observed today.'
