Basel
Switzerland
The photo collection Herzog is one of the most important collections worldwide. It comprises around 30.000 photos and has its beginning in the 1970s.

The single shots or album-organised pictures represent every stage of the technique that has been in use since its invention in 1839/1840. The pictures showcase details of the lives of people around the world in industrial nations from 1839 to around 1970. The collection is proud of photos by influential photographers and private pictures, which are particularly valued by the family Herzog.
