This is a magazine-style photobook which brings together the photographic contributions to Fotoblog Naniwa, a project conducted by Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber, into the form of a publication. Fotoblog Naniwa was started in 2006, when Stuke and Sieber invited artists and friends to send them a single photograph (of around 10 x 15 cm) to them by email with no accompanying text or context.

About the Artist
Katja Stuke (b. 1968) is a German artist. She lives and works in Düsseldorf. Together with Oliver Sieber she covers an extensive range of personas: photographers and artists, curators and exhibition organisers, designers and art book editors. Yet as they move through their photographic cosmos, it is not always so easy to determine where one identity ends and the other begins. Regardless, in their works and activities as artists and art facilitators they have long since become moderators of a very specific photographic culture.

Oliver Sieber studied photography in Bielefeld and Düssseldorf. Since 1999 he has worked with Katja Stuke on BöhmKobayashi projects.
