The photographic studio Šechtl & Voseček was founded in 1865 by Ignác Šechtl (Schächtl in the German spelling). The business was passed down successive generations of the Šechtl family, from Ignác Šechtl to Josef Jindřich Šechtl, and then to Josef Šechtl and Marie Šechtlová. A thematically rich archive of hundreds of thousands of negatives and vintage photos has been preserved, representing 150 years of photography. The collection contains, for example, studio works (portraits and group pictures), pictures of memorable places, fine art photography, reportage photography and street photography.
Šechtl & Voseček Museum of Photography is a private museum in Tábor, Czech Republic, founded in order to digitize and make publicly available the photographs from the Šechtl & Voseček archives.
