More about this magazine

  • 100 pages plus jacket 
  • 21cm x 15cm 
  • Published in Augsburg, 2018 

A playful and inventive piece of photo storytelling, the new issue of Der Greif combines strange and beautiful contemporary photography with excerpts from Mary Shelley’s 19th-century novel Frankenstein. The resulting juxtapositions are sometimes funny, sometimes profound, but always create extra layers of meaning that show both the text and images in a fresh light.


Curated by photographer and Guggenheim Fellow Jason Fulford, the magazine includes work by 67 photographers, presented alongside the text as “a single work by a hypothetical author”. This is whimsical and original publishing, and it’s a lovely object too, with hidden surprises waiting beneath the removable dust jacket.


Der Greif was commended in Best Use of Photography at the 2018 Stack Awards


In this issue:


  • Odd and affecting photography plays with gothic horror
  • Portraiture, still life and abstract ideas
  • “I threw myself into the chaise that was to convey me away and indulged in the most melancholy reflections”


Issue 12 of Der Greif is also available in the Stack shop.
