Lecturer Victor Brigola awarded the “FEP Photo Book Prize”


Photography lecturer Victor Brigola wins the Federation of European Photographers’ Photo Book Award in the Monographs 2024 category. Congratulations to him!

The idea for this book was born in the course of the 25th anniversary of Victor Brigola’s self-employment as a photographer.

It was important to me to show free work and to build on my tumblr blog https://alwayswonderingandwandering.tumblr.com/ where I have been posting a square picture every morning for more than 11 years, says Victor Brigola.

Victor has put together a collection of images in the context of typography and architecture. He has selected 100 images from this collection. Merz Akademie student Christina Rollny has designed the selection of images in book form.
