This year, the ‘BLICKFANG – Deutschlands beste Fotografen’ (Eye catcher - Germany’s best photographers) yearbook once again presents the status quo of professional photography in Germany.
Following the success of the last editions, the project has been further improved and is now published as a luxurious linen hardback, with a fresh design and a more generous format.
The elaborately produced compendium is alphabetically arranged and presents a wide variety of the best photographers Germany has to offer (with various specialities).
Their work is presented on 704 pages and is accompanied by a short description. Editorial contributions on the subject of ‘photography’ compliment the various styles and provide an insight of the various opinions and styles of working.
This time the writers are: Mats Cordt (photographer), Ralph Richter (photographer), GABO (photographer), Alexander Gnädinger (photographer) and art buyer Kim Bianchi c/o DDB, whose article describes a normal day for an art buyer.
Also worth reading: the eight interviews with photographers including Michael Schnabel, Esther Haase, Diana Scheunemann and Felix Holzer.
The interlocking of the economy and photography is an additional subject: a total of 750 free copies of the book are strategically sent out to the most important agencies, publishers and art buyers in Germany.
‘BLICKFANG’ offers orientation and inspiration. For art buyers, art directors, editors, commercial clients and photography enthusiasts. In stores now and priced at 44.90 Euro, it can also be ordered from amazon.de or directly from the publishers (www.nbvd.de/shop).
