Katharina Otto-Dorn (1908-1999)

The photo archives of the well known Islamic Art Historian covers not only extensive educational material for teaching (reproductions) but also several thousand slides, photos and negatives, mainly from Turkey and Syria, taken in the 1950s and 1960s.

A strong focus is on slides and photos from the excavation (1965-66) of a Seljuk summer palace with figured tile decoration in Kubadabad on Lake Beysehir in Central Anatolia. A rarity are the slides and photos of the first and second campaign of the excavation in Resafa / Rusafat (Syrian desert) in the years 1952 and 1954.
