Director General Klaus Albrecht Schröder is compiling his own representative selection from the approximately 100,000 works of the ALBERTINA Museum’s extensive Photographic Collection.

Schröder’s 120-work selection provides a wide-ranging look into the museum’s photographic holdings, which are being expanded on an ongoing basis—for example by central works of street photography, one of the main collecting emphases.

This presentation introduces genres such as portrait photography, architectural photography, and landscape photography while also giving an impression of important photographic movements.

Featured photographers (selection):

Atelier d’Ora | Brassaï | Henri Cartier-Bresson | William Eggleston | Walker Evans | Trude Fleischmann | Lee Friedlander | Rudolf Koppitz | Helmar Lerski | Lisette Model | Stephen Shore | Anton Josef Trčka

The exhibition is on view from 7 March until 10 June 2018.
