Acting For The Camera

The moment at which photographer and model come together is intimate, tense, and fascinating. Their work with one another is characterised by creative dialogue and alternates between staging and self-presentation.
With around 100 masterpieces, this third presentation of the Albertina’s Photographic Collection examines the multifarious relationships between the individuals on either side of the lens. Its thematic chapters deal with expressive staging for the camera, work with anonymous models as part of scientific projects, photography as a model for painting, and photographers’ own self-portrayal.

Featured photographers (selection):
Ottomar Anschütz | Bill Brandt | Brassai | John Coplans | Trude Fleischmann | Seiichi Furuya | Martin Imboden | Dora Kallmus | Seydou Keita | Rudolf Koppitz | Johann Victor Krämer | Heinrich Kühn | Helmar Lerski | Will McBride | Helmut Newton | Cora Pongracz | Otto Schmidt | Anton Josef Trcka | Erwin Wurm | Gregor Zivic
