Der Greif promotes contemporary photography, featuring the work of up-and-coming photographers and authors from around the world.
Der Greif researches subjects affecting the production, distribution, presentation and thus our perception of photographic images – on screens, in print as well as in exhibitions. All projects connect virtual, physical and / or print-spaces.
For issue 11, Der Greif has invited Jason Fulford, American photographer, artist and publisher of J&L Books as guest editor. Sourcing from our archive of past submissions, Fulford’s edit takes us on an eclectic tour through diverse visual languages. There are sixty-seven photographers and one writer represented in this volume. The text is an excerpted from a famous 19th century novel.
After 10 years and 10 print issues, Der Greif has decided to explore new territories and to change its appearance. In this and future issues, we invite guest editors to work with the same concepts of de- and recontextualizing single images through their individual working methods.
Jason Fulford is a photographer and co-founder of J&L Books. He is a Guggenheim Fellow and a frequent lecturer at universities. His monographs include Crushed, Raising Frogs for $$$, and The Mushroom Collector. He is co-author with Tamara Shopsin of the photobook for children, This Equals That, and co-editor with Gregory Halpern of The Photographer’s Playbook.
