In 2016, Puklus published his third photobook ‘The Epic Love Story of a Warrior‘ in cooperation with Self Publish, Be Happy, London. This title got shortlisted at the Aperture / Paris Photo Photobook Award 2016.
Andrea Grützner (b. 1984, Germany) is an artist, photographer and communication designer, currently living and working in Berlin and New York. Grützner’s artistic work deals with the emotional and visual perception of spaces. She seeks the familiar and at the same time unfamiliar, asks questions about the memory of places and our orientation in the designed space. Using mostly photographic means, she finds and creates images as well as objects that oscillate between photography, painting and collage. She explores questions of documentary, surreal, abstraction and visual irritation.
Grützner has received several awards and scholarships and has been exhibited in Australia, Brazil, Mexico, USA, China and South Korea, among others. She was selected as one of the Gute Aussichten prize winners 2014/2015, as a recipient of a PhotoVision sponsorship and awarded by the Source Cord Prize 2014.
Born and based in Berlin, the work of Lia Darjes is always documentary in nature. She finds it appealing to explore the limits of documentary photography and to anticipate the viewer's experience while taking pictures. Her work has been exhibited in Germany, France, Canada, Russia and Switzerland and published in national and international media such as M le Monde and CNN. She has received various scholarships and awards, including the young talent award of the Art Prize of the Lotto Foundation Brandenburg.
