The Karo #03 edi­tion is a selec­tion of pho­tographs of Johannes Mein­er (1867−1941) by Ylva Mey­er from the Build­ing His­to­ry Archive of the City of Zurich

Johannes Mein­er (1867−1941) ran a flour­ish­ing pho­to­graph­ic stu­dio in a promi­nent loca­tion in Zurich’s Metropol House. The spec­trum of his pho­to­graph­ic work cov­ered all gen­res such as por­traits, archi­tec­ture, land­scapes and adver­tis­ing. One of his spe­cial­i­ties was stere­oscopy, i.e. pho­tographs that have a three-dimen­sion­al effect when viewed through a spe­cial observ­er. These stereo­scop­ic images have a square for­mat and are ide­al for Black­print­’s Karo Edi­tion. Zurich sub­jects from the peri­od 1900 to 1910 have been select­ed to show us an urban idyll. At the same time, they are his­tor­i­cal image sources (for the old Ton­halle, for exam­ple) and wit­ness­es to a high lev­el of pho­to­graph­ic art from the Belle Epoque.
