Mrs Roberta for The Pierre Auger Collaboration Colalillo (NA)


The Pierre Auger Observatory, located in Argentina, provides an unprecedented integrated aperture for the search of photons with energy above 10^17 eV in a large portion of the southern sky. We will discuss the results obtained with fluorescence and surface detectors in diffuse and directional searches for primary photons in the EeV energy range.
