About the project

The more than 2,000 photographs by this folklorist that were taken between 1890 and 1924 are not only witnesses to events within the family, but instead also provide in-sights into the everyday cultural life of the region.

The show will be contextualised as a special exhibition as part of the reopening of the „Hotel Austria, Willkommen im Salzkammergut Museum der Stadt Bad Ischl” from July 2024 onwards.
