The study focuses on the photographic negatives and slides from the personal estate of traveller Barbora Marketa Eliášova stored in the National Museum – Náprstek Museum of Asian, African and American Cultures. Photographic negatives and slides were divided between the archival fund and the museum collection. With the use of digital technologies, it was possible to reunite separated parts and study them as a whole. For negatives, the main question was to find out which images Eliášova took herself on her travels and which are image reproductions from other sources. In the same way, slides were examined as evidence of the use of photographic techniques in lecture activities.
