‘Bilder für Millionen’


General Photography

There is a long article about contemporary photography in Germany’s weekly Die Zeit, which unfortunately you won’t be able to enjoy unless you are able to read German. The article made me realize how different the photography scene in Germany really is. It’s quite instructive to notice how many Germans apparently don’t realize how well some of their photographers are doing internationally. And it’s very refreshing to see how a widely read magazine discusses in such a simple and accepting fashion the use of digital technologies and the changes they brought to photography, without getting mired in either hyping digital technologies or bemoaning violations of photographic orthodoxy. Hopefully, there will be an English translation of the article (I doubt it, though).
