Working Worlds




© all images Mitch Epstein

Today I saw a small but fine exhibition with works of Richard Avedon, Barbara Klemm, Wouter Deruytter, Mitch Epstein, Ville Lenkkeri and Sebastião Salgado.

The DZ Bank in Frankfurt has one of the worlds biggest and finest collections of contemporary photography. In the foyer of one of their glamorous buildings in Frankfurt they have a small gallery where they show several exhibitions a year. Since I love the photographs of Mitch Epstein I was absolutely thrilled to see his original prints. I would have loved to just put the works in my car and then put them on my own walls.

Unfortunately the website of the bank with the collection is only in German. For everyone who can read German, check it out here

Hi Ben, I totally agree with you about Epstein. His Family Business is also one of my absolute favorites.

We have "Untitled NY (oranges and blue curtain)," from Mitch Epstein's The City series!

He is so, so brilliant!
