Karlo Dieneš, an amateur photographer and pharmacist from Nova Gradiška, left us with a valuable collection of photographs which offers plenty of research opportunities. This research focuses only on their social role. In this paper, we ask three questions: what motifs did he photograph and to what had he aspired in doing so, how did photographs and photography impact his social connections and status, and, finally, how could he present them to the public and thus influence the visual culture of his era.
