Address on the back of a photograph, around 1865

Eugen Lulves (born August 3, 1832 in Mulhouse , † after 1865) was a photographer who worked in Hanover in the 19th century .


In 1859 he wrote Lulve's book Twelve Views of the Sixth Trade Exhibition in Hanover , which was published through Victor Lohse's court bookshop . It had the initials of King Ernst August I of Hanover on the envelope and contained twelve salt prints with interior photos of the last trade exhibition in the Kingdom of Hanover .

Lulves was first listed as a photographer in the address book of the city of Hanover in 1860 . In 1863 he became court photographer for the Hanover royal family . What has not been researched is how Lulves “earned the right to this title”. It is precisely this title and the associated early recordings of the royal family that make Lulves so important: “George V was blind and was therefore not reached by the charms of the new visual medium, which is why there are hardly any recordings of him and the royal family. Reproductions based on painted images of rulers were distributed [for presentation to the people], but recordings "after life are extremely rare". "Only" after the loss of the throne after 1866 "did George V use" from exile in Austria " all the more eager for photography, "[...] to keep alive the thought of an early return of the ruling house and a restoration of the old conditions". In exile in Gmunden , however, other renowned photographers came into play, such as the "kuk court photographer" Carl Jagerspacher .

In 1863 Lulves offered an album from 1813 in the Neue Hannoversche Zeitung with 16 photographed portraits of famous men from the wars of freedom .

Around 1865 Lulves had his studio at Nicolaistraße 5, "next to the Odeon ."
