Current exhibition

Previous exhibitions in WWW form

We are working hard to make our past exhibitions available on the internet in the form of on-line exhibitions. Our “real” exhibitions usually display more photographs, and in much better quality, than we can publish on the internet. Still, we hope you will find the on-line exhibitions interesting.

If you are interested in displaying any of our past exhibitions, please let us know. We would be very happy to assist you in any way we can, and several of our exhibitions have already been displayed at other institutions.

About us

Three generations of the Šechtl family have been photographically recording life in Tábor for the past 140 years. Over thirteen thousand glass plate negatives have been preserved, from the years 1864 to 1940. These plates document the changes in Tábor as well as many interesting people including Emperor Franz Josef, presidents T. G. Masaryk and E. Beneš, sculptor František Bílek, inventor František Křižík and musicians Oskar Nedbal, Josef Suk and Bohuslav Foerster.
