Film Stills: Photography Between Advertising, Art and the Cinema

4 Nov-26 Feb. The Albertina devotes an exhibition to the film still and its place between photography and film.

The 130 images on display date from 1910 to the 1970s and show how movie photographers restaged classic film stills such as Mariyln Monroe standing over the air vent in her white dress in The Seven Year Itch.

The exhibition represent a cross-section of several schools of photography and filmmaking such as Pictorialism, Expressionism and Art Nouveau, and includes images by Deborah Imogen Beer, Horst von Harbou, Pierluigi Praturlon and Karl Struss.
