Carol Popp de Szathmary

January 11, 1812, Cluj – July 3, 1887, Bucuresti

Carol Popp de Szathmary was an Austro-Hungarian-born painter, lithographer and photographer. Being a passionate traveller, Szathmary journeyed through Europe and often crossed the Carpathian Mountains to visit Wallachia and its capital Bucharest, where he eventually settled in 1843.

He was the first certified photographer in Romania, being also one of the first 10 photographers in Europe. Carol Popp de Szathmary was the official photographer of the Romanian ruler Alexandru Ioan Cuza and of the first King of Romania, Carol I of Romania.

He is considered the world’s first combat photographer as he took pictures in the battlefield, during the first year of the Russian-Turkish War, later known as the Crimean War (1853-1856).

Most of his life he worked and lived in Bucharest, where he died.
