Photography byLudwig Belitski
Little story

In 1845, Baron Alexander Minutoli, art collector and officer in the Royal Prussian Army at Liegnitz, announced the creation of the first "collection of photographs for the edification of taste." The Baron first wanted to collect daguerreotypes, but realizing the expense required for their preservation, hired Ludwig Belitski to make photographic albums instead. He never received any financial compensation for taking part in the creation of the first "Virtual Museum of Arts and Crafts," but he was given great support and acknowledgement. Upon his death in 1902, and after publishing a large number of articles and being made honorary member of several distinguished associations, he was considered one of the most important German photographers.
