Photo Archive

Erika Hubatschek began taking photographs in 1938 – and she kept her Leica in her hand until the end of the 1990s: a time span of over 60 years! During this time she produced 14,000 black-and-white negatives, 2,500 colour slides and several hundred colour prints. These have all been archived, and some of them already digitalized.

Catalogue system and search criteria


The entire photo archive is numbered chronologically. As soon as it is digitalized, each photograph is labelled with keywords and can be found under different search criteria (multiple choices also possible). This enables us to respond efficiently to requests. For example, we can find a photograph requested under the search criteria “1941, Tux, haymaking” or “1950s, Schmirn, fence types” or “1939, Stubai, flax”.

A small section of the archive can already be accessed digitally.
A fee is charged for the photographs, which are available for private and for academic use.
