decoration17 June 2011|02 Oct. 2011

The first twenty years after the invention of photography were marked by pioneers and experiments. The foundation of the Photographic Society in Vienna in 1861 was a crucial event within the beginning professionalization of the production of pictures which was to pervade all spheres of life.  The members of Society, such as Trude Fleischmann and Rudolf Koppitz, came from a wide range of professions and pursued many different objectives.  Presenting about 260 outstanding examples of Austrian photography dating from before 1945, the exhibition will shed light on both the range and quality of the pictures produced by the Photographic Society’s members.
