Contemporary German Photography

Volker Schrank’s portfolio contains a bunch of fairly interesting series. My favourites might be his portraits of German newscaster (“Stars der Wahrheit”), each one portrayed in an absurdly heroic pose with gaudy colours (you get the impression they were not too uncomfortable posing that way - why are newscasters always such pretentious, pompous fellows?), and his series from Cuba (“Vorwärts und nicht vergessen”). His dyptich portraits are also very nice.
