The Austrian photographer Von Stillfried lived and worked in Japan and also took trips to China. He exhibited at the World’s Fair in Vienna in 1873 and also once in Amsterdam. In the 1877 international photography exhibition, his exceptional photographs were on display at the Arti et Amicitiae artists’ society in Amsterdam. These types of portraits and landscapes reaped him great praise and a medal.
