The name Karl Bulla beamed into the history of photography faster than a magnesium flash. This photographer, who worked in St. Petersburg at the turn of the 19th and 20th century, was the first to do many things in his field. He was, for example, one of the first people to take his camera to the streets in order to capture events, streets, buildings and people. This is the reason why Bulla received the title of «the Father of Russian Photo Reporting». It is through his eyes that we often see the life of St. Petersburg, which was the capital of the Russian Empire, as about 100,000 of his images are stored in archives.
