DUMMY AWARD KASSEL 2015

FIRST PRIZE

Jan McCullough »Home Instruction Manual«

The dummy book Home Instruction Manual entered in the competition by Jan McCullough is a real discovery in 2015. Jan is a photographer from Belfast with a weak spot for manuals, books that tell you how to do things. For this project she searched the internet for tips on how to build your perfect home. After collecting all the tips, Jan rented a house and followed all the instructions given to her. She photographed the end result; a home with a forced personality. Something you can’t say about Jan McCullough, a natural talent to watch out for.

Erik Kessels

SECOND PRIZE

Kumiko Motoki »White Fang«

Kumiko Motokis’s White Fang was for me perhaps the most exciting book dummy submitted to this year’s Kassel Fotobookfestival. Based on an actual dog fight that took place in Aomori in Northern Japan in early 2014, this slim soft-cover publication moves cleverly between colour and black-and-white imagery: colour for the build-up before the event; black and white for the fight scenes; colour for the brutal outcome. Varying between formal, straight-up portraiture, and Antoine D’Agataesque blurred imagery, along with well-placed inserts on the history of dog fighting in Japan — which is only banned in some areas across the country — this book perfectly manages to walk the fine line between the gruesomeness of this ancient and brutal practice and the well-crafted aesthetic of a modern-day photo book.

Curt Holtz, Prestel Publishing

Komiko Motoki

 

THIRD PRIZE

Oliver Blobel »Amateure«

Oliver Blobel’s book on German amateur camera clubs is both a funny and illuminating body of work. Taking a subject matter that I have never seen explored before , he shows the club outings, the print competitions being judged and studio sessions of these camera enthusiasts. This is photography at it’s best, where an apparently boring subject is turned into a hilarious and yet very dry set of photos.

DUMMY AWARD KASSEL 2014

FIRST PRIZE

Irina Rozovsky »Island on my mind«

This shortlisted dummy impressed the jury thanks to its iconic photography, thoughtful editing, and its uncomplicated binding and layout. The book was put together and presented in a simple way, which was what made it the jury’s favourite. Interestingly enough, the book does not claim to be on Cuba, hence leaving a sense of curiosity in the reader to dig deep inside the book.

Island on my mind

 

SECOND PRIZE

Mafalda Rakoš, Iuna Vieira, Raphael Reichl »3rd Generation«

This is a collective social documentary photo-book project which creates a dialogue on the lives of young Israelis and Palestinians using a very individualistic and personal approach. Made by two 19- and 20-year-old girlfriends (one worked in Palestine, one in Israel), the aim of this project is to present an honest perspective by the people of Israel and Palestine without touching on the conflict-related issues involved in all the stereotypes we know. 3rd Generation does great justice to reality on the ground of this conflict zone, which it presents in a very informative way. The book is divided into two parts – one for the Israeli protagonists and one for the Palestinians – which are connected by a textile bound at the upper edge. Through this concept, both narratives are linked and separate at the same time. A very unique, interesting and highly recommendable book.

3rd Generation

 

THIRD PRIZE

Hajime Kimura »Scrap Book«

This very simply made scrap book is a great example of an ideal dummy which can be produced without perfect skills, materials and techniques. Hajime Kimura’s Scrap Book contains photocopied images, a few drawings and texts glued in a cheap notebook. It could be a private notebook, a diary, a booklet with personal snapshots and visual notes. This scrap book is mysterious and fascinating enough to be a treasure-trove of simplicity.

DUMMY AWARD KASSEL 2013

FIRST PRIZE

Norman Behrendt »Burning down the house«

This dummy impressed the jury the most as it felt that not only had a great deal of work gone into photographing and compiling the extensive book as a whole, but that its »packaging« perfectly suited its subject matter on Berlin graffiti writers, i.e. in that the paper used for the cover was based on the design of the seating material used in Berlin S-Bahn trains. A well-conceived and striking object!

Burning down the house

 

SECOND PRIZE

Artur Krutsch »Thule«

The dummy on the mythological place of Thule, completely shot in black and white, inspired the jury through its subtlety and quiet elegance. Not an obvious choice, individual jury members kept going back to leaf through its pages, taken in by the unobtrusive yet powerful quality of the individual photographs and their story. It will make a beautiful book.

Thule

 

THIRD PRIZE

Robert Beyer »Fahrtenschwimmer«

This unassuming booklet, compiled from a collection of snapshots from the photographer’s grandparents, tells the story of a regular family’s day-to-day life in the German Democratic Republic. The slim pocketsize format perfectly suits its contents, hereby matching the ordinary in so many people’s lives in Germany in the latter half of the last century.

DUMMY AWARD KASSEL 2012

FIRST PRIZE

Dagmar Keller & Martin Wittwer »Passengers«

The top honors for the 2012 Photobook Dummy Award went to a remarkable body of work from Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer and their collaborative book Passengers. During a residency in Poland in the winter of 2011-2012, Keller and Wittwer were initially looking to start a project photographing Socialist architecture but discovered instead a tangential subject: a bus station in Kielce and its passengers awaiting departure within dozens of regional buses. Framing their subjects from outside, looking in through the frost and mist of the bus windows, the couple photographed individually but combined the results into a sequence of images that seem to have a completely unified voice. Calling upon the long traditions of portraiture and documentary style work, the images are stunningly intimate and beautiful but without the trap of sentimentality.

Passengers

 

SECOND PRIZE

Carmen Catuti »Liebe Grüße aus 18500 m Höhe, MICHELLE«

The second place winner is much harder to pin down in a few words. Liebe Grüße aus 18500 m Höhe, MICHELLE (Best Wishes from 18,500 m High. Michelle) from the Italian photographer Carmen Catuti is about a man who calls himself Michelle and says he’s a professional model. Catuti photographed her subject as he wished to be photographed according to his own conceptions »as a modern man« posing among arrangements of trees and shrubbery, cleanly drawn from darkness by flash. Mixed in are very brief texts, possibly letters from Michelle challenging the collaboration; »Plain backgrounds are often too boring. A picture must immediately be elegant, exciting and original.« This book is a U.F.O. (Unique Foto Object?) and the world of photobooks needs more sightings like this

THIRD PRIZE

Andrea Botto »19.06_26.08.1945«

Third place went to Andrea Botto and her book 19.06_26.08.1945. Created in the memory of his grandfather Primo Benedetti, the book traces his journey through Northern Germany to his home in Tuscany after being released from a Nazi prisoner of war camp on June 19, 1945. Botto’s approach was to compile images from the internet by searching dates in tandem with the names of cities through which her grandfather passed. Pages of historical images are combined with 1:1 scale personal documents and letters sent to his family during his imprisonment. The resulting book feels as if the reader has discovered an encyclopedia of war filled with tender personal documents slipped between its pages.

DUMMY AWARD KASSEL 2011

FIRST PRIZE

Milou Abel »Ik ben jou«

The photographer meets the unknown woman on the street, over and over again. She senses the woman’s intensity. Eventually, the photographer asks her if it would be possible to take her photograph. When she visits her home, she is drawn into a world of rituals – and torments: the voice of a young woman full of hatred, who never stops screaming, »I am you, I am you, I am you!« The weird encounter between the photographer and the strange woman gave rise to a book concept and a dummy, composed of her own images and snapshots from past times, using a double gate fold technique to allow the right and left-hand sides of the book to be combined with each other at will. The project won this year’s Dummy Award at the 4th International Photobook Festival in Kassel. It convinced the jury not only because of the eloquent and enigmatic rendering of the story of this peculiar woman, but also because of the extraordinary design of the book. The photographer’s name is Milou Abel while the strange woman remains anonymous.
