ZEISS Art Calendar Book

ZEISS Art Calendar Vol1

The book, titled ZEISS Art Calendar Vol 1 was presented at the Haus der Photographie in Hamburg's Deichtorhallen exhibition center in mid-January 2015. The book combines all six editions of the company's prestigious photographic art calendar that have been published to date.

With unusual compositions of the highest standards, the Art Calendar has caused quite a stir over the last number of years. Publishing houses specializing in art were drawn to the artistic flair of these photographic productions which are issued exclusively for customers. This led to the idea of the book.

Six years, six photographers, six stories told through photographs of twelve prominent actors are featured in this first edition of the ambitiously designed, large-format book.
