About us


Perhaps visitors will be inspired to create a photobook of their own. Courses, laboratories, printing workshops and photobook experts will be on hand to help. Programs will be equally suited to beginners and experts. A special section will be devoted to children and teenagers.

Normally visitors are not allowed to touch exhibits in museums. This will not be the case in the reading room of The PhotoBookMuseum. There visitors will have access to over 300 photobooks. They will be encouraged to feel the haptic quality of the paper and to study in their own way the photobooks on display. The reading room will feature works considered for the Photobook Award at the Fotobookfestival in Kassel from 2007 to 2013. This selection was chosen by a top-class jury and will provide an excellent overview of contemporary photobook developments.
