The Photographic Collection was established as an independent department in the Museum Folkwang in 1979. It was based on the collection Otto Steinert had bought together between 1959 and 1978. Today the Photographic Collection comprises nearly 60,000 photographs, the vast majority of which are vintage prints, by 1,300 photographers from the 19th to the 21st centuries. It encompasses the estates of Helmar Lerski, Germaine Krull, Otto Steinert and the Peter Keetman archive.
