Michael Weinzettl on the BFF 10th “Aufschlag” Photo Awards in Hamburg last week.
For the second year in a row, I had the pleasure to preside over a jury for the Aufschlag (The German word for “serve” in tennis) last week at the annual meeting of the BFF (German Association of Freelance Photographers) in Hamburg. It was once again perfectly organized by the BFF’s Hamburg section by their board advisor, photographer, and filmmaker Christoph Siegert and his team. Aufschlag is in its 10th year now, the photo awards, however, have only been handed out twice. The event was presented by the BFF Hamburg (and some guests from Berlin) in association with @luerzersarchive and supported by Heiner Hauck Portfolios. It again took place in a beautiful spacious art gallery, Barlach Halle K, close to Hamburg’s main railway station. (…)
