• About the Publishing House
Hartmann Books is a publishing house for photo books founded in 2016. We aim to discover politically and artistically relevant work and give each book the appropriate form. Historical positions are featured next to contemporary, more experimental approaches. We understand photography as independent within the visual arts, capable of engaging with culture, history and aesthetics both conceptually and narratively. Our books are made in a collaborative process between the artists, the graphic designers and us. The craft of bookmaking itself, ensuring the highest possible quality for each production, is key to our understanding of what is means to publish distinctive and meaningful books.
