“Between two empires” exhibition opens for visitors at the Užice National Museum in Serbia

František Topič is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s most prominent and pioneering photographers, who spent much of his working life in the then Provincial Museum of BiH, first as an archivist and then as a librarian, secretary and photographer. His rare collection of pictures dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries have recently been collected and presented in an exhibition titled “Between Two Empires: Bosnia and Herzegovina photographed by František Topič 1885-1919”. The pictures included in the exhibition are mostly unpublished.

 

These images show the meeting of two civilisations – the departing Ottomans and the newly arrived Austro-Hungarians – a century ago. Following the exhibition’s tour in Zagreb and Ljubljana, now the people of Užice in Serbia have the opportunity to see these attractive photographs.

 

The exhibition is supported through an EU funded project “Museum Stories”.
