Baron Raimund von Stillfried


Also known as Baron Raimund von Stillfried-Rathenitz (6 August 1839 - 12 August 1911), was an Austrian photographer. After leaving his military career Stillfried moved to Yokohama, Japan and opened a photographic studio called Stillfried & Co. which operated until 1875. In 1875 Stillfried formed a partnership with Hermann Andersen and the studio was renamed, Stillfried & Andersen (also known as the Japan Photographic Association). This studio operated until 1885. In 1877 Stillfried & Andersen bought the studio and stock of Felice Beato. In the late 1870s Stillfried visited and photographed in Dalmatia, Bosnia, and Greece. In addition to his own photographic endeavours, Stillfried trained many Japanese photographers. In 1886 Stillfried sold the majority of his stock to his protégé, the Japanese photographer Kusakabe Kimbei, he then left Japan.
