“It’s like going back in time,” Ellen tells WWD about her book. “I lived in Bavaria from about age 10 to 16 and when I went back, it was incredible to see all these people who still dress in dirndls and lederhosen. I thought it would be fun to do a book in my way.” TASCHEN tells us about the book: “Blending old-world charm with a rebellious edge and a sly subversion of traditional gender roles, Heimat bursts with fresh, provocative eroticism, tied up with wit, laced with an...

Shop • 'Buzzing at the Sill' – a book about America in the shadow of wars by reportage photographer Peter van Agtmael as an illustrated book at Kehrer Publishing and as a book tip for you on GoSee

27.02.2017 • “Buzzing at the Sill is Peter van Agtmael's (*1981) work about coming home from years of covering war in Iraq and Afghanistan and trying to understand his experiences and his country. A student of history at Yale during the September 11 attacks and the invasion of Iraq, his sheltered life was uprooted by the realization that he needed to cover the wars. The work is a stew of reflections on war, memory, militarism, identity, race, class, family, surrealism and the landscape. It is both about the limitations of photography and an homage to its power,” is how Kehrer Publishing describes its publication, which we are delighted to introduce on GoSee.

Only one week after it was released, Buzzing at the Sill made it onto TIME magazine's list of the best photography books in 2016. It is a sequel to Disco Night Sept. 11, van Agtmael's previous book on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that was shortlisted for the Paris Photo/Aperture Book Award and was named a Book of the Year by The New York Times Magazine, Time, Vogue and American Photo.

Peter van Agtmael was born in Washington DC...

Shop • 'Shaded Memories'. The Shadow over Cambodia. photographs by Ann-Christine Woehrl on the darkest moments in the history of Cambodia as a photo book at Edition Lammerhuber

17.02.2017 • During the four years of dictatorship of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge nearly two million people were killed. This is a quarter of the Cambodian population. In a very personal reflection on this genocide, Ann-Christine Woehrl’s photographs present fragments of the places that remind us of these atrocities: prison S-21, the Killing Fields, the UN Tribunal in Phnom Penh and Anlong Veng. German President Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier wrote the preface. The texts were created in a collaboration of Ann-Christine Woehrl with Rithy Panh, Anne-Laure Porée and Stéphanie Benzaquen-Gautier: The photo as an instrument during the times of the Khmer Rouge and as a remnant of the genocide today.

Ann-Christine Woehrl travelled to Cambodia starting in 2013, to visit the S-21 prison, which is today the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, in Phnom Penh. At the time a place of terror and violence, the atrocities are still felt in the rooms and are reflected in the faces of the prisoners. Women, men and children were portrayed during their imprisonment, and the portraits now hang on the walls of the prison....

09.02.2017 • Publisher Ute Mahler and Kunsthalle Rostock conceived a large review for the magazine SIBYLLE, Magazine for Fashion and Culture in the GDR. It was first published by the Fashion Modeinstitut Berlin (Fashion Institute) and later by Verlag für die Frau. The magazine, which was also known as Eastern Vogue because of the quality of its content, appeared in six issues per year in a limited printrun of 200,000 copies due to the restrictions of the state-directed economy in the GDR and was always sold out quickly due to popular demand.

It was created by fashion designers, photographers and journalists with high standards of quality and content. The visual language of Sibylle was trendsetting for the GDR and other magazines in the Communist world. Sibylle was not a pure women's or fashion magazine. The editors instead were also always interested in dealing with current sociocultural themes.

A book was published for the exhibition by Hartmann Projects, which showcases the most important photographers and their works for Sibylle throughout the entire period of publication from...
