100 Years

'Raving Success' | The Jubilee Week Making-Of

'A raving success', the PHOTONEWS titled its report on the festival week "1000 Realities - 100 Years GDL/DFA" in the House of Photography, Deichtorhallen Hamburg from 9th to 13th October 2019. With these pictures of the making-of and the conference, we would like to thank all those involved once again for their efforts in making this festival of photography possible.


Guest Curators

The DFA regularly invites international guest curators to select from the entire pool of members’ works. This selection is evaluated by the guest curator and publicly made available on the Academy's website. For contemporary photographers, new avenues of public interest can be opened up in this way, including opportunities for their work to become the subject of current public debates.

Amélie Schneider is the Photographic Director of DIE ZEIT, Germany’s biggest weekly newspaper. During the last twelve years, she has worked at several German print magazines, among them titles such as GEO and Nido. Previously, Amélie Schneider was the head of the photo department at NEON, the cult publication which helped shape the voice of contemporary photography on the German print market.
