Café Lehmitz Photobooks

Café Lehmitz Photobooks was founded by Richard Sporleder in June 2012. His business objective is to promote the position of the photobook as an artistic medium and especially - quite in terms of photographers and editors - the supply of librarys of museums and universities with current and special photobooks. But he also delivers private clients.
