Bursary: History of the German-language Photobook: Call for Applications

The History and Archives department of the German Photographic Association (DGPh) is awarding a grant concerning the history of the German-language photobook. This grant, which, initially, is going to be advertised over a ten-year period at two-yearly intervals, is intended specifically to promote historical research into all aspects of photojournalism as a part of general photography history. The grant owes its existence to the initiative and legacy of the internationally renowned designer, curator, collector and photography promoter Manfred Heiting (DGPh).

Treatment of the following, related topical fields is conceivable, for instance:

  • History of photomechanical printing methods as well as of the associated industries (printers/graphic arts institutions/block factories, paper makers, press builders) in the late 19th and 20th century
  • History of photographic publishers
  • The photographer and the book
  • On the relationship of photographers and publishers as image suppliers and image exploiters
