The Golden Age of Albanian Photography

Although Albania does not loom large in the history of world photography, it has a photographic heritage that is unique in the Balkans. The exhibition presents a century of outstanding and evocative pictures from a European country that has been exposed by the winds of history to eastern influences from the Ottoman empire. It features around 60 portraits of heroes or unnamed figures, studio compositions, landscapes, Christian and Muslim funerals, and scenes of daily life from the time period of 1858 to 1945.
