Boasson and Eggler
of Their Imperial Majesties
In 1902, Swiss photographer Frederick Boasson and his German
companion Fritz Eggler bought the studio of the famous court photographer
Pasetti in St Petersburg. Soon they became
favorite photographers of the Imperial family and St Petersburg aristocracy.
They were among the first who introduced a new service: taking portrait
pictures at clients' homes.
Photographer Eggler was known as a master of
the refined portrait. He introduced well thought
out artistic poses, superb lighting, neat interiors and his very own photo mats.
1914 photographs of the daughters of Nicholas II were taking at the Alexander palace in Tsarskoe Selo.
