dienacht Publishing ist “Publisher in Resindence” at the OstLicht. Galerie für Fotografie in Vienna! OstLicht is also co-organizer of the ViennaPhotoBookFestival.
The residency begins this Thursday, April 3rd, (with the opening of the exhibition “Araki Teller Teller Araki”, yay!) and lasts for about 6 weeks. During this time, every book published by dienacht Publishing will be displayed at OstLicht and available for purchase.
The Photographic ROUGH HOUSE presents 2 post-documentary workshops with internationally renowned photographers Cristina De Middel, Scott Typaldos and Kim Thue.
During each session a group of 10 people will be taken down a personal path to explore new means of creating visual documents, traveling beyond the classic documentary mechanics of storytelling.
Whilst discussing some unique possibilities within the realm of documentary photography, Cristina, Scott and Kim will strive to put the participants at the heart of the creative process through individual assignments that will encourage each one to uncover their own voice and approach.
The workshop will provide a fresh perspective and hopefully give its participants a renewed sense of experimentation, which they will be able to carry forward and expand in their future photographic practice.
For 5 days in June (From the 9th-14th and 14th-19th of June), both participants and the 3 photographers will stay in a beautiful country house, peacefully located in the Umbria region of Italy. This remote property will be our base and should provide the perfect framework for a rewarding and intimate experience. Transport will be arranged in order for the participants to immerse themselves photographically in the nearby town of Perugia.
Apart from gaining valuable guidance from the photographers, the successful realization of this workshop will largely depend on each participant’s willingness to push boundaries and challenge conventional ideas and processes. It will be 5 days of exchange, honesty and hard work, set in a supportive environment designed to further artistic development.
For the first time, the Magazine Salon will take place during the Duesseldorf Photo Weekend 2014. In the form of a pop-up library, it will give an overview over the contemporary photography-related magazine culture. The visitors are invited to take a breath, sit down and skim through a fine and diverse selection of international magazines with and about photography.
The Magazine Salon will take place at the NRW-Forum and is organised by dienacht Magazine Der Greif and Kraut Magazin.
If you’re part of a photography-related magazine and we haven’t got in touch with you, please get in touch with us.
Now it’s official: We are happy to announce that “Nowhere” by Leon Kirchlechner (published by dienacht Publishing and Der Greif) has just been awarded with the German Photobook Prize in Silver (Deutscher Fotobuchpreis)!
“dienacht” #1 was first published about 6 years ago; 13 regular issues and 3 special issue have been published, and I still enjoy a lot discovering new and older works and making the magazine. “dienacht” has fans all around the world and many older issues are completely sold out.
But one thing never changed: “dienacht” is still a non-profit one-man-magazine, and when I say “non-profit”, I mean: I can hardly pay the printing costs (it’s printed local). Considering the periodicity, circulation of only 1000 (numbered!) copies, low selling price and high printing costs (and not to talk about the time and energy required for doing the magazine), “dienacht” will never become a commercial magazine. Still, it would be a bit relaxing not to thinking every time about how and if I can gather enough funding for paying for the production of the next issue.
There are many ways to supporting “dienacht”: write a review if you have the opportunity, or recommend dienacht to friends having this opportunity; buy one or several issues (“dienacht” is a timeless portfolio magazine); sell “dienacht” in your bookshop, gallery, store, café, …; advertise in a printed issue or on the website/blog; or spread the word about “dienacht” and share this. I’m happy about every kind of support.
dienacht Publishing proudly presents: a very special, limited Artist Edition (40 copies) by Claudia Eschborn.
The fascination for Albrecht Dürer’s graphic work and – as a result of this – an intense curiosity, lead through a variety of ways to the reading of Gerd Unverfehrts book „Da sah ich viel köstliche Dinge“, which tells about Dürer’s travel to the Netherlands in the years of 1520/21.
This journey, narated and interpreted in that book, together with extracts of the journal Albrecht Dürer wrote during his travels, are basis to the presented photographic series under the title of 1520/21.
The places that Dürer once visited, the things he saw, formed the route the photographer traveled – and while trying to find something of what the artist had seen, had experienced those days, the photographer tried to capture the own personal impression of these scenes.
The series of work splits into sketchy, vaguely seeming polaroids and very concentrated large format photographs – an involvement of diverse intensity, according to the respective places and personal emotions.
