Introduction
The grandson of a sculptor, Heinrich Kühn studied painting and music and, after a brief military stint, medicine and natural science. From this training he turned to microscopic photography, but around 1890, after continued experiments with this procedure, he gave up medicine entirely and devoted himself solely to photography. He is known for photographs in the Pictorialist style. Kühn was also involved in technical investigations and research, and in 1934 he received a patent for a film with increased light sensitivity.
