Marianne Blatter's photographic legacy

A whole generation of Cham residents were captured on camera by the local photographer Marianne Blatter (1920-2004) between 1949 and 1995. Approximately 100,000 negatives, together with the order book, have provided the people of Cham with an invaluable assemblage of portrait photographs from the second half of the 20th century. However, the photographer’s estate not only comprises a collection of negatives, but also includes objects from her studio and photo shop. In addition, a video was shot at her house, which shows the photo laboratory and other rooms in their original state, and explains her working methods. The video provides an interesting insight into the era of analogue photography.
