Austrian painter and photographer who learned photography from his uncle Andreas von Ettingshausen (1796-1878). He accompanied the Austria-Hungarian mission to the Far East that commenced in October 1868 to establish commercial and diplomatic relations with the countries of the Far East (Siam, China and Japan). He stayed in Japan for around 7 months (Aug/Sept 1869 - March 1870) and used local studios for his photographic work including Hikoma Ueno studio in Nagasaki and the Renjo Shimooka studio in Yokohama. His large format works are rarely seen but his stereoviews can be found including his sets:
