The photocabin at Pestel 13 is an attempt to recreate the atmosphere of a chamber photographic studio of the mid-19th century. From studios of that time it is distinguished, perhaps, only by the use of artificial light. Here you can drink tea, leaf through the albums of old masters, consider and even touch the old photographic technique and, most importantly, take pictures with the help of wet collodion technology, ambrotypia.
The photocabin is located in the historical center of St. Petersburg, near the Summer Garden and Fontanka. The house at Pestelya 13, the former apartment house of Ratkov-Rozhnov, was built in the late 19th century by architect P.Yu. Susor, who, as you know, designed Singer’s House on Nevsky. There is a parking lot.
