dienacht Magazine and dienacht Publishing 2015 - what remains

2015 has been an amazing year – a beautiful and successful one (well, not in the monetary sense, but that's not the most important thing anyway). I met so many great people at festivals, workshops and fairs, and spend such a good time with them; it was always too short, but there is hope to meet them again soon.

We had great collaborations, such the one with the Ost.Licht Gallery (leading into co-publishing a huge Ren Hang book/catalogue) and the Leica Gallery in Vienna (leading into co-publishing the small, intimate book Kinky City by Pawel Jaszczuk). Or the second time at the OBSCURA Festival in George Town, Malaysia. Or the invitation of the Goethe Institute to Lagos, Nigeria. Just to name a few, but there have been much more and I know I don't justice to the ones I didn't named. There were not less important, or less precious.

Here are my own, personal photos from one of these trips.
