art book cologne, founded by Bernd Detsch in 1997, is a wholesale company and specializes in buying and selling high quality publications in art, art theory, architecture, design, photography, illustrated cultural history and all related subjects internationally. Our team includes specialists in art, culture, music, book trade and media but in spite of our diversity we have one common ground: the enthusiasm for unique art books.
We purchase remaining stocks from museums, publishers and art institutions. We sell these remainders to bookstores, museum shops, and art dealers all over the world.
Hilarious yet scary, hardcore yet charming, the Hamburger Eyes crew put out the illest lil' photography magazine the world has ever seen. Since the first issue of 30 xeroxed pamphlets was printed in 2002, Hamburger Eyes has become an elegant yet underground periodical combining the documentary approach of National Geographic with the hit-'em-hard sensibility of a late-night tagger.
A pictorial history of both the intimate and iconic moments of everyday life, Hamburger Eyes is a travel journal, a personal diary, and a family album. Inspired by the traditions that began with Life magazine and Robert Frank, the magazine revitalizes the sensation of photography as a craft as well as a tool to record and document.
Now, in their first book, Hamburger Eyes: Inside Burgerworld, they put you through the grinder with a selection of photographs by magazine masterminds Ray Potes, David Potes, Stefan Simikich, and Jason Roberts Dobrin, as well as regular contributors Ted Pushinsky, Dave Schubert, Boogie, David Uzzardi, Tobin Yelland, Ryan Furtado, and countless other upstarts. Get ready for photography on the loose.
