Posted by Gestalten—06/2014

Earlier this year, Studio Chérie called for courageous photography and received submissions by more than 200 young talents. Now, to coincide with the 48 Stunden Neukölln art festival, Chérie is presenting the ten artists who are honored by the jury.

Winning photographers are Berta Katona, Eric Mitjans, Feriel Bendjama, Franziska Hauser, Giacomo Cosua, Lourens Samuel & Nick Lapien, Li-Han Lin, Mickaël Merchand, Sandra Wolfer, Serena Salvadori, and Steffi Loos. During the public exhibition curated by Chérie’s art director Kristine Alksne, one photographer will be chosen as the audience's favorite and win an entire shooting weekend at Studio Chérie. The second prize will be a decent selection of the newest Gestalten books.

Vernissage: Friday, June 27, 7:00PM
Winner ceremony: Sunday, June 29, 6:00PM

Jury members include: photographers Maxime Ballesteros and Christoph Neumann, curator Tina Sauerländer, Pierre André Podbielski of Podbielski Contemporary and Gestalten's creative director Sven Ehmann.

I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman featured on Slate.

The Craft and the Makers reviewed on L'Officiel Hommes. "Der Band bildet verschiedene Leidenschaften ab und zeigt: Handwerk hat nicht nur goldenen Boden. Es bekommt auch junge Impulse, die Tradition und Stil vor dem Vergessen bewahren."

Hello, I am Erik featured on Fluoro.

The Outsiders recommended on Parlor.

The Outsiders featured on GEO.de. "Zwischen Bildern, die Lust machen, die Stadt sofort zu verlassen, findet
der Betrachter immer wieder Interviews mit Menschen, die den Schritt in
die Wildnis bereits gewagt oder das Unterwegssein zu ihrem Leben
gemacht haben."

Our House in the City on Salon.

Elsa und die Nacht recommended on Die Bücherfresser. "Der wunderbar gelungene, poetische Text wird kongenial von surrealen, expressiven Bildern umrundet ... Ebenso wie  eine schöne Einschlaf-Geschichte ist dieses Buch eine zarte Geschichte über Verlust und Versöhnung."
