In 1931 Salzburg pharmacist Hans Rustler studied at the then famous Agfa Photoschule in Berlin, compiling a stunning sample folder that encapsulates the state-of-the-art in analogue photography at that time. At the presentation on show at the FOTOHOF archiv these ‘sample images’ are complemented with photographs of interiors of the Photo School, a small selection of photographs of Berlin, and a portrait album of Hans Rustler himself.

Hans Rustler the photographer is a new discovery, one that was made possible by his daughter Renate Rustler-Ourth in collaboration with the FOTOHOF archiv.
Hans Rustler was born into the Austro-Hungarian Empire on 1 November 1910 in Liebenstein near Eger, present-day Libá, Bohemia. Christened Johann, and died on 26 August 1988 in Salzburg.
