English: Photograph of May Torok von Szendro (1877–1968), the second wife of Khedive Abbas Hilmi II of Egypt. Originally part of the nobility of Austria–Hungary, she converted to Islam (which is why she is seen wearing an Islamic veil) upon her marriage to the khedive in 1910, and was henceforth known as Djavidan Hanem. This photograph was used on the Ottoman passport that was issued to her on 18 February 1922. It was thus taken on or before that date.

This photograph was uploaded to the website of the Autograph Collector Club & Society on 9 November 2009 by Zoltán Márián, who states that the original photograph was given to him in Austria by a man whose mother personally knew Djavidan Hanem. The photograph thus comes from a private collection, and was never published before.

Public domain The copyright to this Austrian photograph or artwork has expired and it is currently in the public domain in Austria pursuant to the provisions of Article 74(6) of Federal Law BGBI No. 111 of 1936.

For a simple photograph (lichtbild), such as passport photos, it was either published more than 50 years ago or it was taken more than 50 years ago and never published within 50 years of its creation.

Photographs that involve artistic interpretations, such as studio shots and those that involve lighting and poses, qualify as lichtbildwerk or "works of literature, music and art" (Eurobike: OGH, Beschluss vom 12.9.2001, 4 Ob 179/01d and Article 60). As such, a 70-year p.m.a. term of protection is applied (see this discussion).

In order to be hosted on Commons, all works must be in the public domain in the United States as well as in their source country. Austrian works are currently in the public domain in the United States if their copyright had expired in Austria on the U.S. date of restoration (January 1, 1996). However, some works might have a subsisting U.S. copyright resulting from the long-standing copyright relations between Austria and the United States.
