The oldest exhibits of the collection of negatives at the Šiauliai “Aušros” museum are the glass negatives from the end of the XIX century that belonged to Aleksandras Jurašaitis (1859-1915), a photographer and zincographer, and were created in Belarus. A. Jurašaitis is thought to be the first Lithuanian photographer who photographed wild nature and animals (European bisons) in the Belovezh forest. As a military man, he had the permission to take pictures of the tsar and hunting trips and at that time he took the famous pictures of European bisons in the Belovezh forest.
