Retracing Albania's history through photography

Shortly after the invention of photography, an Italian started the first photography studio in Albania.

Now an exhibition of the photographs taken by three generations of photographers has opened in Foam, a museum of photography in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Kim Knoppers is the curator of Dynasty Marubi - A hundred years of Albanian studio photography.

She told Dan Damon the photographs bear witness to the country's rich cultural and political history.
