GOOD PROSPECTS
2014/2015 − YOUNG GERMAN PHOTOGRAphy

JANUARY 23 – MARCH 8, 2015 AT THE HOUSE OF PHOTOGRAPHY


Since it was first launched back in 2004, House of Photography at Deichtorhallen Hamburg had been advancing the »gute aussichten − junge deutsche fotografie« (»good prospects − young german photography«) project. In the meantime it established itself as the most important prize for up and coming photographers in the field of contemporary photo art in germany. This year’s selection committee, composed besides the founder Josefine Raab, Dr. Wibke von Bonin, Claudia Christoffel, Paul Graham, Mario Lombardo, Stefan Becht und Ingo Taubhorn selected nine award winners out of 100 participants. The photographic works of Karolin Back, Katharina Fricke, Andrea Grützner, Marvin Hüttermann, Stefanie Schroeder, Jannis Schulze, Kolja Warnecke und Eduard Zent will be shown from February 23 to March 8, 2015 at the House of Photography in the Deichtorhallen Hamburg.

According to SPIEGEL »gute aussichten« is »Germany’s most renowned competition for young photographers« which evolves more and more into a »constant substitution of young photography«. The heart of the project is an annual competition for final year projects of all german universities, colleges and academies that offer graduate courses in photography. Every college can maximally submit five applicants. The selected award winners will be presented afterwards in different exhibitions, initiatives and media to the public at large.

»gute aussichten − junge deutsche fotografie / new german photography 2014/2015« presents over 300 images, 2 video projections and 3 artists books.
