Works by Rudi Meisel will be on view at C/O Berlin from August 22 through November 1, 2015.
For the first time in Berlin, the exhibition Compatriots 1977 – 1987. Two Germanys will present 80 photographs from the complete works of Rudi Meisel , some of which have never been exhibited before. Over a period of eleven years, West German photographer Rudi Meisel captured the everyday life of ordinary people on either side. These everyday stories from the years when Germany was divided have long become legends. Some of them live on in Rudi Meisel‘s photographs.
Congratulations to the winner Danila Tkachenko!
The winner of the European Publishers Award for Photography (EPAP) 2015 is Russian photographer Danila Tkachenko with his project Restricted Areas.
Eyes Wide Open. 100 Years of Leica Photography
Just in time to mark a milestone birthday of the legendary compact camera, and for the first time in this thematic breadth, this volume with about 800 images offers a wide artistic and cultural history of the Leica from the 1920s to the present day.
FIND A FALLEN STAR
In Find a Fallen Star, Regine Petersen uses the stories of meteorite falls as a background for her multifaceted narratives; a rock crashing through the roof of an Alabama home in the 1950's and hitting a woman, a group of children recovering a meteorite in their village in post-war Germany, and a more recent event in India involving two Rajasthani nomads.
Last Best Hiding Place
Deserted streets with beer cans blowing down the road… meth warning billboards… a Vietnam vet who lost twenty years of recent memory… a train on its way into a million acres of emptiness… a whole town for sale… a tattooed waitress in neon light.
Härkälä is a book by Finnish photographer Iikka Tolonen, based on the documentation of a group of befriended »hell-raisers« in the suburbs of Helsinki. Härkälä is a photo-poetic story of the harsh world of men stepping out of the system to live their lives in their own way.
C/O Berlin Talents 33: Marc Beckmann, Sarah Alberti
Every year, people try to keep the memory of the past alive on selected days, often with lavish festivities and public rituals.
Tough & Tender. English seascapes
The photographs and portraits express a great deal about the uniqueness of the English. They have resolution of spirit and strength. They have courage to sunbathe on rocky coasts, laugh in the pouring rain and stand in the mud when the skies are forever grey
Father, Son and the War (Vater, Sohn und der Krieg)
In 2013 German photographer Tom Licht (b. 1972) took off with his father (b. 1940) on a somewhat different kind of road trip: from their small home village in Southern Thuringia thousands of kilometers eastward, on the search for the place where, 72 years previously, his grandfather, 35 years old at the time, had fallen during an attack on a Russian village in the war.
LANDSLEUTE 1977 – 1987. TWO GERMANYS
Rudi Meisel was one of the few West German photographers to travel to the GDR several times a year. On assignment from numerous media outlets he was able to document everyday life there – a special thing at that time.
