Frank Gaudlitz (*1958) is one of the most important German photographers of today. For three decades, he has occupied himself with the transformation of Russian society and in his photos shows how much disparity there is in the country.

Photo Objects

Photographs are not only pictures, but three-dimensional objects as well. They are picked up, turned around, edited, framed, sent, posted on the Internet, thrown away, or deleted. Since the 19th century, scholars have been collecting photographs and creating extensive image archives, which also today, in the digital age, have lost nothing of their relevance or topicality. The book brings together contributions about work on and with photo objects from four photo archives in Berlin and Florence. This compilation is supplemented by the perspectives of various artists.
