About the Work

Carl Albiker received his training at the Photographic Training Institution of the Lette Society of Berlin between 1928 and 1930. His 1930 shot of an eye testifies to the technical precision he learned there. In 1934 he went on to head the photography department of the Art-Historical Seminar in Marburg. He continued his photographic work during his time in military service (1940/41), documenting architecture in France and Holland on behalf of the Wehrmacht.
