laif Photographers Meeting 2013
Last Saturday, on 30 November 2013 about 130 laif-photographers as well as employees and guests participated in this year's photographers meeting in the premises of the Comedia Cologne.
Manager Peter Bitzer gave an informative review on the market situation and the situation at laif, Head of Marketing and Sales Regina Plaar presented the new, restructured, optically improved and with a more comfortable image search equipped laif-website that will be launched in January 2014.
A lively exchange occurred also in the context of the agenda items "Multimedia" and "Presentations by photographers". The multimedia works by Gaby Gerster, Andrea Artz, Sabine Bungert, Maria Litwa, Kai Loeffelbein and Christian Werner as well as the presentations of works by Fabian Weiß, Frank Heuer, Helena Schaetzle, Jan Grarup and Peter Rigaud showed once again what the label laif stands for: the photographic and personal realization of topics relevant to society that are emotionally moving – and that with an extraordinary quality.
During the evening, discussions and exchange continued, accompanied by delicious food, Koelsch and coffee. For us, it was a completely successful event and also the photographers offered favorable feedback on the meeting. The only deficit: It was over far too soon!
