Institute of Historical and Cultural Anthropology

Retzlaff slides

There are still 130 slides of the folkloristic photographer Hans Retzlaff (1902-1965) in the institute today. Most of them show traditional costumes, the rest is made up of custom, handicrafts, views of houses and carnival. In 1999, a project group compiled a critical catalog of Retzlaff's holdings, which also includes his photographs (see photo collection) and deals with his role as a supplier of images of folklore.
