The heritage of ancient Egypt: Photo archive of Günther and Ingrid Hölbl

In December 2021, the Slovene Ethnographic Museum acquired an extensive photographic archive of the cultural heritage of Egypt and the Western Mediterranean.

The archive was donated to the Museum by Professor Dr Günther Hölbl and his wife Ingrid Hölbl, MSc, both from Austria. An Egyptologist, Günther Hölbl began systematically photographing archaeological sites as early as 1974, and produced some 14,000 slides. The exhibition will feature a selection of photographs of Egyptian shrines and tombs along the Nile River, on river islands and in desert oases.
