Street Life in Vienna: Photographs from 1861 to 1913

Street Life in Vienna: Photographs from 1861 to 1913

By Michael Ponstingl and Monika Faber

As an exceptional treasure chamber of visual knowledge, the Albertina has been collecting photographs since the mid 19th century—something which was "rediscovered" only once the Photographic Collection had been established in 1999. Supplemented by the historical inventories of the Höhere Graphische Bundes-, Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt Vienna, which not only contains pictures but also equipment and a comprehensive library, the opportunity is provided here to research within the ongoing comprehensive traditions of the various media, the interrelations and the contrasts of this especially multi-faceted phenomenon, called the "photograph."
