Gerhard Steidl, born in 1950, founded his own publishing house in 1968 and worked as a printer and designer. He now publishes the world’s largest program of books of contemporary photography and an ambitious literary program. In addition, he devises and curates international exhibitions. In 2020, he became the first non-photographer to receive the Sony World Photography Award for Outstanding Contribution to Photography and the Mainz Gutenberg Award. In 2021, he was awarded the Grand Order of Merit by the federal state of Lower Saxony. In the same year, his publishing house won the federal government’s German Publishing Award. Steidl is also the initiator and founding director of the gallery Kunsthaus Göttingen, which opened in early 2021.
