Regards from Zagreb

Just a year after the Lumière brothers screened the world's first film in Paris, Zagreb followed suit. This was 1899, but for the past century the city had been abuzz with excitement surrounding the dawning of photography - pioneer D. Novaković had already captured stills of metropolitan life in 1840, and in 1892 the first photography club had gathered at the Society of Arts and Crafts.

1910 saw the city's first exhibition of international photography held at the Art Pavilion - which makes it the perfect place to house this fascinating exhibition. Through postcards, prints and film reels, the survey not only explores the history of photography, but gives glimpses into life in the Croatian capital through the 19th and 20th centuries.
