The Czech Art Noveau painter Alphonse Mucha was a man of many mediums -- apart from painting, he worked with illustrations, advertisements, postcards, designs, and least known, photography.
Alphonse began with photography in the early 1880s, Vienna, where he borrowed a camera. He didn't get to own a camera until his success and recognition in Paris. His photographs drew from a large studio in Val de Grâce, where with more lights, large windows and glass ceilings helped with his output.
Mucha made a remarkable series of portraits of his models, using photography as an inexpensive way to study the body and forms in the composition. HIs studio was a rather different one compared to his contemporaries -- his was a world of art in its own right.
While his photography remains slightly popular, they are now being considered outdated.
