The gallery’s main emphasis is on organizing and presenting exhibitions and talks as well as expanding their comprehensive library and publishing books of photo art. Fotohof Salzburg is primarily a gallery. It hosts approximately seven exhibitions in Salzburg every year, complemented by traveling exhibitions across Europe and in the USA.
