Alexander Mishon (Russian: Александр Михайлович Мишон; 5 July 1858, in Kharkiv – 5 July 1921, near Samara) was a Russian photographer and cinematographer. Born to a French family in Kharkiv, he started his career as a photographer and owned a photo studio in his hometown. He later settled in Baku (nowadays capital of Azerbaijan) and lived there for 25 years.[1] Here, in 1898, he shot his first films using a Lumiere cinematograph. Michon is widely regarded as the pioneer of Azerbaijani cinema.
