The first photographers of the Northern Capital of Russia, the busy life of the numerous photo studios on Bolshaya Morskaya Street, and early stereophotographs offering stunning urban views
The exhibition “St. Petersburg in 19th Century Photography” brings into the spotlight the works by local photographers: Alfred Lorens, Albert Felisch, and Karl Bulla — the creators of iconic views of Saint Petersburg. Despite many technical difficulties and imperfections of the newly developed art technology, they left behind a legacy of emblematic photographic images of our city. In addition to them, the exhibition includes photographs from the albums held in the collection of ROSPHOTO, including the recently attributed album by the De Jongh brothers, French photographers, whose work in the Northern Capital has been little known to researchers until recently.
The project “St. Petersburg in 19th Century Photography,” dedicated to the 180th anniversary of photography, consists of an exhibition with a multimedia part and a program of lectures.
