Introduction
Braun was associated with the Société Française de Photographie. He opened his first studio in Dornach, Alsace, or in Mulhouse France in 1850 and another studio in Paris in 1868 or 1873 with his son Gaston. They were assisted by Adolphe's son-in-law, Léon Clément . Upon Adolphe Braun's death in 1877, the firm was run by Gaston, his son-in-law Léon Clément and Louis Pierson. At this point the firm may have changed its name to "Braun, Clément & Cie."
