Time & Location
About The Event
Baku Street Photo Festival invites you to join an online talk entitled “How did photography emerge in Baku” by an art historian and musicologist Fariza Babayeva.
Our guest speaker will refer to archival materials, exploring the emergence, development and transformation of photography in our country.
Fariza Babayeva will take us back to “XlX Century Baku, which reminds her of that enchanted photographer, who froze in delight facing universal beauty, trying not to break the magic spell”. Fariza Babayeva will talk about Photography, but will pay tribute to its predecessors, (dagueroscopes, stereoscopes, diagrams, magic lanterns) that came to us along with foreign speech, book printing, technical novelties, fashion, rustling skirts, bare feet... and other conquests of European civilisation”.
