The Museum Ludwig in Cologne can lay claim to the earliest Berlin daguerreotypes--albums that once belonged to Alexander von Humboldt, and photographs by Maxime Du Camp of Egypt, by Auguste Salzmann of Jerusalem and August F. Oppenheim of Greece. Its inventory also includes more than 300 portraits of artists, writers and politicians shot by Hugo Erfurth in Dresden and Cologne, and 200 caricatures and illustrations on the behavior of people in front of and behind the camera, as well as numerous documents and autographs from figures ranging from Daguerre to Talbot, from Hermann Biow to Lszlo Moholy-Nagy. Over the past 20 years, parts of this collection have traveled and been published in connection with their appearances elsewhere. Now, for the first time Facts provides an overview of the entire extraordinary collection.
