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, Julia Margaret Cameron, Henri Cartier-Bresson, William Eggleston, Walker Evan, Trude Fleischmann, Lee Friedlande, Rudolf Koppitz, Helmar Lersk, Lisette Model, Stephen Shore, Anton Josef Trčka.
