"Calcutta" has been published in second edition by Hatje Cantz recently. This project, probably the most succesful I have conducted with students from the UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS in Bremen, has been published worldwide and drew attention to the city and its heritage. “If Calcutta had the appeal of Havana,” Süddeutsche Zeitung, one of Germany’s leading newspapers, wrote, “its palaces would long ago have become the subject of various coffee-table books.” And who says they don’t have that appeal? Thanks to Calcutta (Chitpur Road Neighborhoods), we now have the opportunity to see for ourselves." Joerg Colberg
Kill Your Darlings is a unique exhibition and book project by a group of photographers of the same name. The menacing-sounding title, Kill Your Darlings, describes the disciplined approach which the members of the group take to selecting images: the stated aim is to only choose those images which "unlock" the issue either in terms of content or emotion whilst also satisfying formal demands and taking the relevant contexts into account. If these criteria are not met then even the favorite image, the "darling", has to make way.
