Film Stills photography exhibition in Vienna
from the museum site:
The Albertina is exhibiting the hybrid genre of film stills for the first time, showing 130 photos from between 1910 and the 1970s that represent a cross-section of various historical schools of photography and filmmaking such as Pictorialism, Expressionism, and Art Nouveau.
In light of photos by Deborah Imogen Beer, Horst von Harbou, Pierluigi Praturlon, Karl Struss, and others, three aspects of this genre’s intermedial relationships are highlighted: the functions performed by film stills, the interfaces between photography and film with their breaks and couplings, and the additional artistic value of still photographs.
The exhibition is a cooperation of the Albertina and the Austrian Film Museum.
