The lecture referred to the exhibition Andreas Feininger. New York in the Forties” and addressed selected authors of street photography of the 1940s and 1950s.


Andreas Feininger was a leading representative of 20th-century American photography. For him, the city was a source of inexhaustible creative impulses and interesting motifs. Fascinated by the dynamics of the big city, he wandered the streets of New York, photographing its inhabitants, architecture, and everyday life.


However, Feininger was not the first photographer to be captivated by the urban landscape and the life within it. Already at the beginning of the 20th century, enthusiasts of photographic technology recorded the ephemeral, unpredictable, and colourful life of the city on a photosensitive surface, laying the foundations for the development of a separate genre: street photography.
