Na Bolom Photo Library

The content of the photographic archive is due to the production of the founding anthropologist of Na Bolom, the Swiss Gertrude Duby, from 1943 until almost the end of her life in the 90's. The collection also contains material produced by the archaeologist Frans Blom from 1922 to 1957; In addition, we have the donation of Marcey Jacobson, who in his 15 years of production generated 14 thousand negatives. The file has around 50 thousand negatives. The central themes are: Selva Lacandona, Archeology, Landscapes and activities in San Cristóbal de Las Casas.

The contained photography gives an overview of the 20th century in Chiapas, its transformations, its life and its people.
