“Most of the images of Haiti that we are presented with arise in precisely these situations: in the immediate heat of a drama. [...] I was looking for something different. In retrospect, as a photographer in Haiti I have almost always been active far away from the dramatic culmination of events; in the sediment of the country's history, where the sand that has been stirred by the catastrophes settles again, and life in Haiti simply goes on after each of these seeming cataclysms.» Thomas Kern
We’re looking forward to meeting you at our joint stand in Frankfurt—J76 in Hall 4.1!
The new stand is part of the campaign Communicating Architecture. This is a longer-term, joint undertaking of publishers Park Books and JOVIS (Berlin). Today, books are more often chosen for the topics they cover than for the name of the publisher behind them. We have decided to use this circumstance as an opportunity to launch a completely new form of collaboration and book presentation at the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair. Our initiative will continue after the book fair, with events and collaborations revolving around the topics of architecture and architecture books.
You’ll find further information about the initiative and the daily topics at the book fair here.
We are very proud to announce that our title War without War was awarded the silver medal at the German Photo Book Awards 2016 in the category "conceptual artistic photobook." Our wholehearted congratulations go to photographer Meinrad Schade, editor Nadine Olonetzky, and the design team of Hi-Visuelle Gestaltung from Lucerne for their excellent work.
