The opening of the new exhibition, "100 Years of Auotchrome", at the Šechtl & Voseček Museum of Photography, was very successful. The exhibition was opened by Alain Scheibli from France (great-grandson of Antoine Lumière) and by historian of photography Pavel Scheufler.

We would like to thank everyone who come for opening day, and everyone who helped to make this exhibition possible.

We were reminded of Lumiere's contribution to movie film by the projection of the earliest movies by Lumieres themselves, as well as movies of George Melies, “Voyage to the Moon” (1902), “Eclipse” (1907).

HP Z3100 printer

Our museum is now half-owner of an excellent new HPZ3100 photo printer. (We only own half of it; however, we are able to print in its full width of 110cm). This printer allows us to keep closer quality control on the prints we prepare, and will allow us to produce them more promptly.

You are now welcome to order prints from our archive. We can prepare small photographic prints, but also large size prints can be made, for example, for interior decoration. Such prints from our negatives can already be found in “U zlatého lva” and “Třeboňka” restaurants in Tábor, and soon also in KFC Bratislava. By ordering such prints, you support our project.
