  1. Hello,
    my name is Dana Huetz and I am studying photography at the university of Bielefeld in Germany. In the context of a seminar this semester about intercultural identity and diversity I am doing a study about the historical development and usage of the medium of photography at the swahilicoast/ Kenya. Therefore I am looking for historical images which allow me to analyse which role the medium played.( Images of rooms where one can see how kenyans used familyportraits as decoration, studioportraits with the aim of antropological studies of the swahilicoast natives, portraits for the purpose of showing the beauty of the human etc.) . So my first question would be if there are some postcards in your archive which can help me to push my research forward and if there is any possibility to get acess to them (scans, copies, or even buying the book if there are any pictures displayed I am looking for).

    Thank you in advance! Kind regards and greetings from Bielefeld,


  2. Hello,

    I am a current undergraduate doing my thesis on Kenya women and the narrative of hair. I would love to request all your postcards relating to hairdos and grooming practices if possible. I am a huge admirer of this website and I thank you in advance for your time.
