ProfiFoto : November issue with Eva Paechnatz' Chimera project, camera news, Prix Pictet, photo books special feature, …

The ProfiFoto November issue is out now. It features the Chimera project – human and nature hybrids – by Eva Paechnatz, who graduated from FH Dortmund.

The photographer comments on her project: ‘the former perception of a harmonious relationship between humans and nature is out-dated. It is based on the traditional knowledge of many generations who believed that people, animals and plants are part of an entity, which can only survive if all its parts are functioning and alive. But with the industrial revolution this thought has been abandoned in favour of a hunger for progress and consumption. However, because of the damage this new way of thinking has done, people have to begin to reconcile with nature again.’

The newest magazine provides lots of information on new cameras: Nikon D600, Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 and Hasselblad H5D. It also contains an 8-page ‘Prix Pictet’ portfolio as well as pictures by Gerald Henzinger - Iron Faces. Furthermore, the issue also includes an extra feature on ‘photo books’.

Prix Pictet puts the focus on photography that deals with questions central to global sustainability. Now in its fourth year, the award has ‘Power’ as its central theme and encompasses topics such as energy, violence and dominance.

Thomas Gerwers, editor of the magazine, says: ‘we have successfully discovered energy sources for travel, industry and our modern way of living, but we are still exposed and vulnerable to the forces of nature. Technology and infrastructure can easily collapse due to storms, volcano eruptions or earthquakes. Political and social power can rise to these challenges, but it can also degenerate into an instrument of tyranny and exploitation. The exceptional artists that have been shortlisted for this renowned photography award interpret this diverse subject with vision and genius’.
