The STREET PHOTOGRAPHY COLOGNE COLLECTIVE was founded by Sven Hoffmann und Andreas Ott in 2017 with the ambition to promote Street Photography as a contemporary art form.
For that purpose, the collective provides an platform for street photographers from Greater Cologne to promote their subject or project based work to the public and to get in touch with the local or national photography and art scene. We intend to collaborate with other alike initiatives, galleries and museums, we organize joint exhibitions, photobook projects and support the individual activities of our members.
Especially in Cologne, a culturally diverse city with a long photographic history and host of the Photokina and Art Cologne trade fairs, we see a high potential to establish street photography as an art form.
Every current member can nominate photographers who already contribute to the greater Cologne photo szene actively and on a regular basis. We then invite candidates to submit an up-to-date portfolio that demonstrates the individuals eagerness to work on a project or theme based approach and his or her contribition to the collective.
We are looking forward to your contact as an artist or potential partner. Please contact us at email@example.com or by phone at +49 151 6740 2911.
