Presentation abstract

This paper focuses on modes of representation of people with disabilities in the second half of the nineteenth century photography in the territory of Latvia (at that time: Russian Empire) and on aesthetics of series of photographs included in the album with title “Idioten-Anstalt” published in Riga in 1862. The objective of the paper is to identify the photographic practice in a special education and mental health care institution by looking for answers to questions: Who is the author of the album? Who were the photographers? Where photographs were taken? Who were photographed persons?
