Book of the week: 40 years of laif – 40 positions of documentary photography

The laif photo agency was founded in Cologne's Südstadt quarter in 1981. Today, the agency represents more than 400 photographers worldwide, including many World Press and Pulitzer Prize winners.

The publication accompanying the MAKK exhibition shows 40 positions of documentary photography. The internationally known photographers illustrate the world through its conflicts and fractures. Their works also reflect the aesthetic development of documentary photography from the 1980s to the present.

Here you'll find the exhibition catalogue and a selection of books by some laif photographers.
