We have a brand-new partner, Still magazine from Berlin. They combine literature and photography in their publication, but focus on literature, and we are happy about some exchange about quite similar interests :)
Still is currently calling for papers and pictures, you can submit your work here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Christiane Wöhler will be guest-blogging on our site for the upcoming six days. Christiane studied visual arts at Bauhaus University Weimar and is currently living and working in Leipzig. Her work has been exhibited and published by magazines such as SZ Magazin, Zeit Magazin, and many more. We are happy to have her and say: Welcome, Christiane!
Claudio Ricci, Simon Karlstetter, Matthias Lohscheidt, Leon Kirchlechner
We want to use the special occasion of Leon Kirchlechner being our Guest-Blogger for this week to give you some updates concerning the team behind Der Greif. We have a fresh, new constant member, Claudio Ricci, who has been a close friend of ours for many years and now is helping us with some issues as economics, calculation and strategy. Now Leon, Simon and Matti can devote theirselves to the creative part.
Besides working on Der Greif, all members are involved in different individual projects and activities. It’s worth taking a look at our personal portfolios ;)
By the way I would like to mention that the festival was definitely one of the best I visited so far: lots of interesting publishers, wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, nice surrounding, perfectly organised, … great music :) and last but not least we made some good friends!
Dear friends! Dear Greif-blog readers! I’m glad to also have the possibilty to make some posts on the Greif website during the next few days. Right now, Calin, Simon and me are on a little roadtrip promoting Der Greif, dienacht and my first photobook.
We just arrived in Vienna. And as we gonna be at the ViennaPhotoBookFestival tomorrow and on sunday, I had to think about a great documentary, made by Michael Kollmann, curator of the Ostlicht Gallery, where the Festival will take place. Michael is a big fan and collector of photo books and magazines. It’s really worth taking a look at the public library he set up in the gallery.
The documentary is about Allan Porter’s photomagazine »camera«. There are some interesting lessons to learn about independent publishing… Enjoy!
For the upcoming seven days, Leon Kirchlechner will be posting on our blog. Leon, born in 1985, lives and works in Augsburg. He is part of the team behind Der Greif, and has just released his first book, Nowhere. We ourselves are happy to give you some insights about one guy from our team, and hope you like it!
