The museum houses a photo collection dating back to the 19th-20th centuries, including printed photos, as well as glass plate and film negatives. A standout feature of the collection is a series of photographs taken by Konstantin Zanis and other members of the Caucasian Sericulture Station staff in 1889-1910. These photos depict various activities related to sericulture in the Caucasus, as well as portraits of locals, landscapes, architecture etc.
The museum prepared IIIF description - international standard of high quality image exchange between cultural institutions. The photos were digitised with the financial support of British Library Endangered Archives Programme. Digitisation of the glass plate negatives was made possible with the initiative of German artist Olaf Nicolai & Georgian curator Nina Akhvlediani through the financial support of Goethe-Zentrum Baku. Below you can see photos organized by subject (the collection will be updated occasionally):
