The photographers of Alba Iulia
In modern age Alba Iulia, there were individuals who cared deeply about the visual memory of the city, and they left evidence of their passion in the form of photographs. Stimulated by their thirst for beauty and concern for the preservation of images of the past, the photographers succeeded, through their pictures, to convey the image of the old city. The first stage of this project, Alba Iulia – a history in images of the city through its streets and monuments is based on two important collections of old photos, held by the National Museum of Unification, the Archive of the Roman-Catholic Archbishopric of Alba Iulia and the Municipality of Alba Iulia. The images were created by two passionate photographers, Adalbert Cserni and Arthur Bach who covered seven decades of Alba Iulia’s visual history.
