English: Maximilian van Berchem (1863–1921) was a passionate Orientalist, specialist in Islamic archaeology and photographer. Between 1886 and 1921 he travelled to Egypt, Palestine, Syria and Turkey to carry out research. At the turn of the 20th century, he also photographed buildings of art-historical importance in Switzerland. Max van Berchem was a member of the Swiss Society for the Preservation of Historic Art Monuments, a predecessor of the Federal Archives of Historic Monuments (FAHM). Following his death in 1921, his photo collection therefore passed to the FAHM under the terms of his will.
