Leopold Museum - Moriz Nähr. Photographer of Viennese Modernism

Moriz Nähr (1859–1945) is one of the most important innovators of photography in Vienna around 1900. His photographic oeuvre is mentioned today in the same breath as that of the famous Parisian photographer Eugène Atget. The exhibition at Leopold Museum presents his multi-faceted oeuvre comprising not only landscape, architecture, and portrait photography but also street photography (Scenes from the Naschmarkt, 1918) as well as photographs documenting exhibitions (Vienna Secession).
