Charles Marville (1816-1879) was a French photographer who mainly photographed architecture and landscapes. He used both paper and glass negatives. He is most well known for taking pictures of ancient Parisian quarters before they were destroyed and rebuilt under "Haussmannization", Baron Haussmann's new plan for modernization of Paris. In 1862, he was named official photographer of Paris.

French language notes

Charles Marville débute comme peintre-graveur. On trouve quelques-uns de ses dessins dans La Seine et ses bords de Charles Nodier (1836) et dans Paul et Virginie de Bernardin de Saint-Pierre (édition de 1838).

Il publie ses premières photographies d'architecture chez Blanquart-Évrard à partir de 1851.

En 1862, il est « Photographe de la Ville de Paris » et publie l'Album du Vieux-Paris.

On ne connaît pas exactement la date exacte de sa mort.
