(Genoa 1833 – Dresden 1896)
Alfred Noack worked in Genoa from 1860 to 1896, and took many photographs in Liguria, specialized mainly in views. When he died, his archive was bought by other photographers including Carlo Paganini who reprinted Noack’s negatives while signing them as his own. The considerable work that has survived, gathered over many years of activity, bears witness to his great technical experience. In fact, Alfred Noack is considered, as Piero Becchetti sustains, one of Northern Italy’s best photographers.
