Since spring of 2017, 8 recipients of Steidl Book Award have been traveling to Steidl Publishing in Gottingen, Germany to make their photobook with master printer & publisher, Gerhard Steidl.
8 Asian photographers of diverse backgrounds make books beginning with their individual artistic intentions, and finally arrived at physical books with the printing expertise and material knowledge of Steidl Publishing.
