The Karin Schneider-Henn Photo Gallery in Wasserburg presents ‘Father and Son: Dialogue Between the Generations’ black and white photographs by Karsten de Riese, until 27 September 2009.

The Portfolio introduces Raimond Wouda’s ‘School’ photo project. The images were realised at various Dutch schools. The photographer focused on the social spots at schools, rather than the lessons or actual class rooms, these were the cafeterias, playgrounds and school halls. He captures young people interacting and searching for their true identities. Nazareli Press recently published his photo book with a foreword by Martin Parr.

The Special Archive series presents its 6th edition with the photo collection of the European Cultures Museum in Berlin.

Swiss private bank Pictet & Cie’s Photography Prize, the Prix Pictet 2009 is very interesting. The theme deals with the questioning of our lives and society, in 2009 the main theme is EARTH. Honorary President Kofi Annan, former General Secretary of the United Nations, nominated 12 finalists together with an array of international photo experts. Their work will be published in a book and presented in an exhibition.

The exhibition’s first stop is the Purdy Hicks Gallery, London from 5 until 11 October. The complete exhibition of the 2009 Shortlist will be on show at the Passage de Retz Gallery in Paris from 23 October until 24 November 2009. Kofi Annan will announce the winner at the opening ceremony on 22 October.

The October issue will be out on 29.09.2009. This will be presented at the UPdate Hamburg on 9 October. We are looking forward to welcoming Anna Gripp who is usually on the trail of artistic photography, to our Salon for photography specialising in Fashion and Advertising.
