Works by the Bachelor recipients of Photo Journalism and Documentary Photography studies will be on display at the GAF – Galerie für Fotografie in Hanover – from January 28 to February 14, 2016. The young photographers have found their stories on the other side of the world and right outside their front doors. In the process, they are exploring the possibilities of visual storytelling – both analogue and digital.
In their book, film and multi-media projects and in their exhibition presentations, the students tell about the difficulties of a young mother who is still a child herself (Jana Euteneier), about a pensioner band from Bremen (Karsten Klama), about young people in Greenland (Maria Feck) and the visions of amateur astronomers (Nils Tränkler).
In a photo essay, they discuss the escape to Europe and the collapse of the Dublin system (Kaveh Rostamkhani) and dare to take stock of US society based on healthcare in the Appalachian Mountains (Jelca Kollatsch) and in an approach to life in rural regions (Felix Schmitt).
Leica photographer Kai Löffelbein reveals the proportions and consequences of illegal tin mining in Indonesia. The work of Henner Rosenkranz and Nora Lammers reflects how the topography of specific places can be represented in two-dimensional photography.
