Photo Contest, Exhibition and Catalogue: Kolga Tbilisi Photo 2014

I'm pleased to announce that my series "Athens Rap" in Geocell mobile category was chosen by the KOLGA AWARD international jury members among the best photos of the year 2014.

"Athens Rap" is part of my long term project on the crisis in Greece. It shows the underground rap culture of Athens - a self organized and non commercial movement with an anti-racist and anti-bureaucratic common sense.

The photos will be exhibited on May 1 at KOLGA AWARD exhibition to be held in Tbilisi, Georgia, and will be printed in the annual photo catalogue.

Photo Contest and Catalogue: Kolga Tbilisi Photo 2013

The series "Pomp and Power in the Steppes of Kazakhstan" has been shortlisted for the documentary category by the Kolga Award international jury members. The photos of this project have been chosen to the best photos of the year in Tbilisi, Georgia. Now some of them are printed in the Kolga Award annual photo catalog which was published recently and now is available at Kolga Tbilisi Photo Office. Find complete series also on this website: Pomp and Power

"The photos focus on two cities: Alma Ata, the former and Astana the new capital of Kazakhstan since 1997. Alma Ata located on the famous Silk Road developed and grew organically over centuries, so investment driven architecture couldn't destroy the character of the city. Astana on the other hand is a green field site founded by its autocratic ruler Nasarbajew. There, one luxury building after the other mushroomed up in the middle of nowhere: The golden Twin Towers, copied from Dubai or New York, a skyycraper with a Chinese Pagoda roof etc.

At the same time in residential areas normal people have to cope with income levels far below European standard. 'The new city', they say without any regret, 'belongs to the rich.' " (Catalogue 2013, p. 198)

Exhibition: "... jeder nach seiner Façon"

" '... because here, each must live as he sees fit' Frederick II famously remarked in 1740, referring to religious tolerance within society. This postulate has remained topical until today, albeit in a broader sense: each of us should be able to live in accordance with his or her own ideas. (...) the appeal of this topic is twofold: it is interesting not only in historical retrospect, but also relevant in a contemporary context. The pictures are thus not intended to illustrate history, but rather as subjective questions raised in the context of the present situation: in how far have Frederic II. and his actions remained alive in collective memory?" (exhibition catalogue)

With his photo series "War and Games" Dieter Seitz's artistic contribution reflects popular myth and mementos of the military ambitions of Frederic II.
