The Pierre Auger Observatory has a significant sensitivity to search for ultra-high energy photons by using data from the ground detector alone or in combination with the fluorescence detector (hybrid mode). Recent upper limits on the photon flux are below the percent-level with regard to the total flux of cosmic rays. The current status and the details of the analysis methods are presented.
