Photographers in the Deutsche Fotothek

The most important task for the Deutsche Fotothek, working together with partners such as the Stiftung F.C. Gundlach, is to preserve and publish photographers’ estates and archival collections in the Internet.
The Deutsche Fotothek sees itself as an important contact and agent for photographers and their heirs, maintaining photographers’ archives and/or working in cooperation with a network of photographic institutions to find appropriate locations for these works.
This virtual archive of photographers serves as a window to the collections of these cooperating partner institutions, providing insight to the great variety and importance of the German photographic heritage.
