Mission and vision

The photos and films of Hugo Wilmar, which he has made during his employment, are stored in various national and international archives. Hugo Wilmar's letters and private photos in the family archive make the connections between the various collections and places in context.

The stories from the letters that Hugo Wilmar wrote during his life form a quiff-like story. They sketch the world view of the top photographer behind, in front of and through the lens of his camera, enriching the stories behind the beautiful photos.

From a cultural-historical point of view, the works of Hugo Wilmar add an important part to the stories and images of the period 1940-1960.

We would like to tell these stories.

From the Hugo Wilmar Foundation we want to initiate, supervise and actively support various projects. Opening up and promoting the works of top photographer Hugo Wilmar is central to this.
