Collection: Heinrich Kuehn

Heinrich Kuehn (1866-1944) was a doctor, mountain climber, family man, and photographer. His early photographic work was influential in the fin de siècle, an important turning point for the birth of modernism. As a member of the Viennese avant-garde, Kuehn's photographs were exhibited at the Vienna Secession. He and other photographers of the early 1900s are credited with establishment of photography as an art form, and with early color photography.
