Events • Paris Photo 2015 – a GoSee look at the world's largest photography exhibition and impressions from the streets of Paris after Friday, the 13th of November, 2015

19.11.2015 • Due to the events in Paris on Friday, the 13th of November, PARIS PHOTO closed its doors and remained closed upon request of the municipal government as did all museums and art institutions after the attacks over the weekend. Paris Photo is the number one fair dedicated completely to photography. At the 19th annual edition this year, 142 galleries and publishers exhibited at the Grand Palais. On Friday, we were on location for you at the event until it ended at 8pm – without knowing, we would perhaps be among the last guests in 2015. We present you a selection of visual impressions from the event on GoSee – along with several sites where it all took place.

SUZANNE TARASIEVE GALLERY showed THE work of the Paris Photo: Juergen Teller's impressive photo, a Kardashian portrait – perfectly placed on an inviting pink background – for a cordial invitation to interact. And that quite deliberately, Jürgen Teller explicitly requested guests to send him their selfies taken with the Kardashian. But that's not all, he had his assistant capture the self-dramatization live on site. We take...

Events • GoSeeAWARDS15 : the winning works 'Whispers from East Berlin', 'True Fiction' and 'Patrouille de France' at the salon What's Up Photo Doc Paris and soon at the convention Fotofrühling in Zingst next spring

19.11.2015 • Documentary photography in times like these... Who would have ever imagined that reality could hit so close to home so quickly? And that assassins would be able to paralyze Paris within only a few hours, or that cultural life in one of the most cultivated cities in the world would be brought to a complete halt? After a wonderful vernissage on Thursday, the only topic on Friday evening, just like everywhere else in Paris – and all over the world for that matter – was the barbaric, indiscriminate and unforgivable attacks on innocent citizens. On Sunday too, at the reopened PHOTO DOC Salon, the unfathomable horror of the events which took place only two days before was the only thing anyone was concerned with. But at the same time, the Salon's guests seemed to demonstrate their determination to not be told how they were to live their lives – not then and not ever – with numerous attendance all night. Fluctuat nec mergitur – tossed by the waves, but will never sink – proved once again to be the true motto of the citizens of Paris.

In cooperation with the spring photography...

"Every day we are inspired by the diversity of creative work we get to see, and with this exhibition, we would like to show the different ways people deal with a topic.

Events • A better life thanks to SOS-Kinderdörfer children´s charity - photographer Patrick WITTMANN presents his portrait series at a charity exhibition in Berlin

11.11.2015 • Worldwide, there are 560 SOS-Kinderdörfer. Children that live there have been given up by their parents or have been raped, children whose families were killed in bombing raids. The exhibition in Berlin is not meant to shock with pictures of suffering and hardships of the victims: "Instead, we want to show how well these children are doing thanks to the support and love of their new families," explains the creator and photographer Patrick WITTMANN c/o ARTISTS & Co. The Munich-based photographer has dedicated himself to this charitable organization for 10 years. The first pictures of the portrait series were shot during business trips, and he later visited individual villages on his own and free of charge. The exhibition is shown in the Berlin main office of the SOS-Kinderdörfer, Gierkezeile 38, Berlin-Charlottenburg.

Events • Erich Sander. August Sander's unbending son, an exhibition in his memory until 31 January, 2016 at Cologne´s NS Documentation Center

02.11.2015 • For almost ten years, Erich Sander, the son of world-famous photographer August Sander from Cologne, served time in Siegburg Penitentiary after he was sentenced to a prison sentence of ten years for preparing high treason (resistance to the Nazi regime) in 1935. On March 23, 1944, Erich Sander died in prison. As a prison photographer, Erich Sander documented the situation of political prisoners in the Siegburg Penitentiary and smuggled letters and photographs out of the prison.

Visitors are given a comprehensive look at Erich Sander and his family's touching life in five areas of the exhibition. About 50 photographs by August Sander, some of which have never be shown in exhibitions, document Erich's childhood and youth as well as his familiar and artistic-political environment. Some of the nearly 40 photographs by Erich Sander reflect the influence his father had on his photographic work. The majority of photos extraordinarily document the living conditions of political prisoners during the Nazi Regime.

The photo exhibition is supplemented by documents and objects from the...
