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.
