A great photographic exhibition just started in the Albertina in Vienna, Austria. Presenting about 260 outstanding examples of Austrian photography dating from before 1945, the exhibition in the Albertina sheds light on both the range and quality of the pictures produced by the Photographic Society’s members. Exhibits from the fields of art, science, and innovative applications of commercial photography convey a fascinating impression of the paths leading into today’s flood of images. The exhibition runs until 2 October 2011.
Here a few examples of the showpieces.
Anna Pawlowa by Dora Kallmus and Arthur Benda, 1913
Maria Schanda by Trude Fleischmann, 1933
Im Springturm by Paul Freiberger, 1931
