Pablo Sittler/Foto Europa

The photographs for postcards credited to Pablo Sittler were taken in both black and white (called real photos, or RPs) and color film (called chromes) in the 1960s and 70s. Bearing Sittler's own imprint or that of Foto Europa, some of the RPs have deckle, or uneven, raggedy edges, and their numbering system runs to at least 118 images. Other RPs have straight edges, white borders, and titles but no numbers. Many titles for the RPs and chromes are printed in dual translation.
