Dear Gido,

I ordered two books for a certain period of time. The first , which ordered is already in my house . Unfortunately, the second I ordered for my friend did not reach him. Could you check if everything is ok?

Thank you,

Hi Gido,

Great to see that so many people have received the book already and are loving it.

Do you have any tracking mechanism for mine? I would like to check if it's getting delayed somewhere.

Thanks,

São Paulo, Brasil

As some of may have read already, we are trying to get the WSP exhibition to São Paulo. We just had a great meeting with the woman in charge at the exhibition in Hamburg. All we can tell is that it does look good! Depending on their budget and some other members of this gallery if the exhibition will take place this year very soon or in the next year. They are definitely interested! There will be other photos chosen from the WSP 2015 book (we will of course contact each photographer being exhibited personally) but like in Hamburg there will be a monitor showing all photos. Fingers crossed!

I got mine yesterday. This book will be a collector’s item. Everyone at Kujaja has produced one of the best books I’ve seen in a while. The earlier books I have ordered have been good, but this one is superb. The photography is fantastic, the printing is spot on and the book is big and beautiful. Nice work Gido, Jo and anyone else associated with the production on this one. Even though none of my images made this book I am so proud to be associated with so many fine people. I will treasure this book.
Gido
2015-07-23 18:56:45
That's really nice to read!! Thank you Lew. Hope all others who got the book the past days also like it (be honoust of course :-)

I just came back from the exhibition, where I wanted to meet a few friends. The doors have been open now all the time and there were a lot of people coming in and out of the exhibition. Jan (the man from the publishing house and gallery) told me that this have been all the time now. It was great to see people also staying there quit a long time because all of them ended up (after looking at all photos) sitting in front of the monitor watching all photos or reading the book.
When I arrived there were 4 people who were reading the book and bought a copy.
It was great to see all those people looking at all the photos! :-)) and liking them cause else they wouldn't stay so long.

And it is working Jo. Evident from the art being produced and the help for the kids on the street. Kujaja will be successful BECAUSE it helps those kids on the street. I don't know how you guys ever attempted this, but I'm sure glad you did. Thank you both.

ALL books ordered have been send out last week

Any word when the books will be sent out. I ordered one on May 6. Thanks.
Gido
2015-07-18 17:09:23
Hi Karen
your book went out last week. I can't tell how long exactly will take to get to you. Sometimes it goes very quick sometimes it really takes a lot of time. (India sometimes takes up to 6 weeks, the USA differs from 1 week up to 3 weeks, bigger packages can take up to 4-5 weeks.
The book went out so late because the post was striking and we didnt want to have the packages laying for weeks in some kind of postal house, so we send them when the post started working again.

Fyi
themagazine 'ELLE Decoration Philippines’ will publish an article about the World Street Photo book in Sept or October edition.
If there is somebody from the Philippines among us or knows anybody there, it would be great to get a copy. I am not sure if we will or can get our hands on the magazine, I of course asked for a copy but I am not sure if they will. This contact goes over the Publishing house... slowly the book and publication process has started ;-) Copies have been send to online and offline magazine so they might write about the book

Hi Gido! I am from the Philippines and I will keep an eye on this. Will surely get a copy and send you photos of the published article. I haven't gotten the book because I am still having problems with my paypal account and my card. I hope it gets fixed this July so I can finally order.
Gido
2015-07-19 15:17:39
You can also buy the book over a lot of other book onlineshops or at amazon there you will find other pay options

Great you will check out the magazin too!

Many thanks dear Gido and congratulations! I need a little help here to order my copy of the book; I tried a couple of times (trying both the "product" section of the site and the red "buy this book" one, but somehow it doesn't work. There is a german message that I don't understand. Any suggestions?
Gido
2015-07-16 10:45:56
Hi Sasan,

we only have a few copies of the book left and I would prefer to sell them together with the WSP 2014 book for I still have copies of that book too and I really want to sell them all ;-) for especially the last copies are the ones which make the profit you can find the special price for both books here: http://photobooks.gallery/en

If you want to buy a single copy and click here on the red button, buy this book you get to the Website/webshop of the publishing house. I just told them to please rename everything in english.
"In den Warenkorb" means add to basket...
Warenkorb = Basket

If you need any help with translating please tell me

A lot of people have recieved their book by now, I hope all like it!
There is one mistake in the book which is really a pitty... on page 202 and 203 there is the photo of Vito Alagna twice and Marco Bozzatos photo is not in there... I am really sorry that this mistake got into the book. The entire team didnt see this mistake. Sorry Vito and Marco!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Many thanks dear Gido, I just realized that my first attempt to order and purchase the book (about 10 days ago) has apparently worked and my paypal account has been charged for the amount of 59.99 Euro. Does that mean that I could be expecting to receive it? I can email you a copy of the the finalized order and the paypal receipt if it helps as the reference. I tried the red button yesterday; the price was 39.99 Euro for a COPY (20 Euro less than what I'd paid last week) but I couldn't finalize the order because there was "no shipping method available" to my address (Canada). But apparently the previous order has gone through. I wasn't sure and I only got the message from paypal today. I'm sorry for the trouble. but I appreciate if you could kindly confirm. Thanks again!
Gido
2015-07-18 17:06:43
Hi Sasan,

I checked, and your book went out here one the same day. ALL who ordered a book; all books have been send!!

At the red button you get to the publishing house and not to our website. The book it self costs 39,99 the rest is for postal and packaging costs. I am sure if you would end the order also the publishing house will charge you money for the delivery... but if not then they are offering the book cheaper as we can, which is of course fine with me but I didn't know that.

We paid 32 euros per book and had to buy 100 books, 7,99 donation and the rest for postal costs. some packages where cheaper then others because of where it got send, we can give back the difference but this is only a few euros and it would costs me hours to find out who paid a bit too much or not, it is easier to send the rest of the money to the children In Kalkota.

Gido
Sasan Ghahreman
2015-07-18 19:32:39
That's fine, I had no questions about the price difference, I just explained it as a reference to the payment so we could track the order. Many thanks again and I appreciate all your hard work and support! :)

Fiiiinall The packages came and the first charge of books have been send out. I could send to Europe only, but on saturday I can send the book to the rest of the world.
IF you got an email from dpd or dpd.iloxx.de this is the tracking email so you can see where your book is on your way to you. I guess this is not possible outside of europe (we'll see)

@Orna and @Maya your packages are also on their way

thank you all for your thanks!

have a great friday you all!

Hi again dear Gido, I tried to order the book through the links (about a week ago and again today, and sorry before reading these comments) but apparently there is no shipping methods available yet to Canada. Please let me know if I'm mistaken, and if there's anything else that I could try. Should I keep trying once in a while or just wait till you inform us? Thanks again and sorry for the trouble! :)

Gido
2015-07-10 00:53:14
Thanks Tzen!
passion is passion. it is the same with photography, only if you are really passioned you will get there, but passion is like a mind holiday all the time for if you do what you want to do there is no need for a holiday. Passion is doing what you want to do. Passion takes all of your time. Familly is of course my main passion but the books is the second...... We are already finishing up the next book and there are more coming ;-)
Time is the only problem, there are three big ideas coming up and I didnt had the time to write them all down....

It takes of course too much time so every thing takes always more time. But if anybody would told me for three years we will have an exhibition in Hamburg and perhaps even one in Sau Paulo I wouldn't had believed that! :-)

fantastic work Gido. a HUGE thanks for all of this. I'm one of the few fortunate that have had the chance to get the book and I can say it's AWESOME.
Maja Siefarth
2015-07-04 10:05:10
Lucky you, but how did you get the book, Fabio!
Gido
2015-07-04 17:28:54
I don't have any packaging for single books but I did had a big box for a lot of books, Fabio ordered a hughe amount of books so I didnt need the single book packing.
Which reminds me that you also ordered more then one book! I'll send you yours. The reason why the most of you dont have your books yet is that I dont have any packaging to send them with. And that is because the post is striking.
BUT here:
https://www.myhermes.de/wps/portal/paket/Home/privatkunden/sendungsverfolgung/!ut/p/b1/04_Sj9Q1NzewMDA1MbTQj9CPykssy0xPLMnMz0vMAfGjzOLdjQ1CHZ0MHQ38_QLNDDwDXDwN3C1NjdzNjYEKIlEU-AQ7ARU4e4U6BvgZGPiaE6ffAAdwNCCkP1w_Cq-SIHMMBZhOBCvA4wY_j_zcVP3cqBw3S88sEwA50lJe/dl4/d5/L2dBISEvZ0FBIS9nQSEh/pw/Z7_G30UAB1A0ONQ60IPDI0G952GN2/ren/p=rowIndex=0/p=backAction=showOrder/p=action=showShipment/p=shipmentID=01182131835122/p=traceId=S45182037534/-/

you can see that the package has been resend and should be there on monday.... I dont understand why it takes sooo long for a package to be send... also here it takes more then 4 days within germany... totally crazy...

If the packages arrive we can start packing and sending the books to you all. I am really sorry that it takes such a long time!!!
Maja Siefarth
2015-07-04 17:49:27
Yes, Gido, I pre ordered three copies. Looking forward to receiving them.
A friend of mine wants to order the book, but to avoid PayPal. What are the possibilities?
Gido
2015-07-04 19:31:39
non with us, but the book has an ISBN number, I am not 100% sure but the ISBN number is there so one can order the book from any bookstore. I guess it will then be a bit more expensive cause the bookstore needs to order it. For we sold almost all the books we have that might be a good solution to check that out
ISBN: 978-3-945772-06-5

here for example you can also buy the book:
http://www.thalia.de/shop/buecher/suchartikel/world_street_photography_2015/EAN9783945772065/ID42873874.html?suchId=c906c884-4a38-4b4a-9fba-e2c1c8f9b1ee&jumpId=5474218
or here
http://www.buch.de/shop/home/suche/;jsessionid=5A291FB0D5A45F4572781B014E7347AE.tc2p?sq=978-3-945772-06-5&sswg=ANY×tamp=1436030878135
or in an switzerland online store:
https://beta.exlibris.ch/de/buecher-buch/english-books/world-street-photography-2015/id/9783945772065
or here:
http://www.amazon.de/World-Street-Photography-2015-International/dp/3945772060/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1436031133&sr=8-1&keywords=9783945772065
I guess there will be hunderds of bookstores online and a lot of offline bookstore where you get the book by now.
There were 2 other people who also had this problem... this might be a good solution :-)

ISBN numbers contain:
1. A prefix element (3 digits)
2. Group or country identifier which identifies a national or geographic grouping of publishers
3. Publisher identifier which identifies a particular publisher within a group
4. Title identifier which identifies a particular title or edition of a title
5. Check digit is the single digit at the end of the ISBN which validates the ISBN

The 13-digit number uniquely identifies books and book-like products published internationally.

The purpose of the ISBN is to establish and identify one title or edition of a title from one specific publisher and is unique to that edition, allowing for more efficient marketing of products by booksellers, libraries, universities, wholesalers and distributors.

Hi All,
here you find almost all photos from the book at the exhibition:

http://www.kujaja.com/en/kj/photos/wsp-2015-exhibition-photos#sets

share the photos if you like!

if all goes well we can start sending the book on saturday or monday.

have a great weekend!

Dear Gido
This is the first time I realize my photo is at the exhibition.
I say all photos are under your name; do not understand completely.
Are the photos also for sale? How is this process handles?
Thank you so much for everything
Orna
Gido
2015-07-04 17:21:35
The photos are under my name because I uploaded the photos here. Kujaja or WSP automaticly tag the photo you upload with your name and I couldn't change that... I uploaded 152 photos which was already a hard job and then finding all correct names would be a few days of work... sorry!
If you want to have your name on the photo I can send you all the photos so you can upload them all by yourself (pls add a link to the photo you want to have, I can also send you the CR2 file so you can edit them better then I did.

There was one persone at the opening of the exhibition asking if it was possible to have one of the photos which are shown at the monitor. I said of course yes but they need to tell me which photo they want so I can ask the photographer if he or she wants to sell it or not. That is of course all up to you.
Photos are printed on a very very high quality print I was amazed myself. The photos cost 350 euros, 100 for the print 125 for the Gallery and 125 for the photographer. All photographers who hang on the wall can decided them selves what to do with the money. Sounds perhaps bad if you know that at some places the quote for the photographer is at 70% but in that case the photographer also should have bring the photo to the gallery. We are lucky that we didnt had to pay anything for the exhibition.

In August I will meet a woman who lives in Sant Paulo, she has to do with art in Sant Paulo, Brasil, and wants to see the photos and we will discuss if we can bring the exhibition also to Sant Paulo in Brasil. She wants more photos hanging and beeing printed on the wall, I heard 40 Photos. The contact comes over a friend of mine.
After I met her I will of course inform you all, and again ask all photographers if they agree with an exhibition in Sant Paulo.

For the exhibition rooms are not always open in Hamburg and people need to ask to get in there, I don't think that a lot photos will be sold. I guess that we will have more success in Sant Paulo.
Let's see what happens :-)
Thank you too all!!

Hi all!

Here are some great photos from the exhibition! (Mine all sucked these are the ones from the gallery)
http://world-street.photography/en/kj/photos/exhibition#sets

There were a lot of people and from 19:00 till 00:00 people came in and out and at some times the gallery was really full.
A lot of Positive reactions!
All photos from the book which were not printed were shown on a big monitor where people stand for long times to see them all. So all who weren't printed, your photo is being shown too at the gallery.

The idea of hanging the entire book at the walls didn't look good so the gallery went for the big monitor. The guestbook idea was realized but hardly people wrote something down on the sheets which were lying in the other room. That is mostly done in one book but because we did it for all photos I guess people didn't understood what it was for.

Some photos were already sold, I don't know which ones. I do know one of the photos was sold before the exhibition started, a woman passed by and saw a photo through the windows and said to the gallery this is the photo I need and bought it instantly.

Oh and btw, the prints are soooo great, they are printed on something called votrex matte which is great every photographer who came in wanted to know what it is and where it was printed...
You could look to the photo in any direction without seeing the light getting into the photo... totally brilliant prints.

Siegfried Hanse and Renis Scerbauskas were there from the community and one new member Rodney Troy too, and some other local street photographers I didn't knew before.

Now the book should be slowly getting in to the book stores, if I find one I will shoot a photo of it. I guess the chance seeing a book here in Hamburg will be a bit higher as somewhere else. The entire list of where the book is or was sold we will get at the end...

Congrats to you all, this is an awesome Project!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am proud of you all and hope to see more great street photography from you all!

Hi Gido. I'd really like to thank you and Jo, the Juries, the Kujaja team and everyone involved for making this happen. I'm really happy that my work is also selected to be part of the book. I am preordering the book this coming few days, I just need to fix something with my Paypal. I am also drafting a solicitation letter which I will send to certain people I know who will be willing to make donations by purchasing the book and donating the book to public libraries here in my city. I hope this goes well. Thank you again Gido and I just couldn't wait to order and get my hands on the book. :)

The Publishing house officially opened the Facebook invitation for the exhibition.
If you would like to come to hamburg you can add yourself here:
https://www.facebook.com/events/865656416858790/

I guess not a lot of people are able to visit the exhibition but if you can we can of course also meet if you like (and if I have time too). I will be there at the opening of course and Jo and I will be there somewhere between the 30th July and 1st August (if all goes as planned).
Jo is btw also planing a kujaja Meet up in London (read about it at the talk: http://world-street.photography/en/talk ) at the 30th of August. I don't think I can be there but with some luck perhaps I will make it.

Thanks to you Gido. I have been eagerly waiting for the WSP yearbook. Will you be distributing it to the published photographers?
Gido
2015-06-07 13:55:20
I would love to give all photographers a copy but we don't have the money for that. We started the photo book idea with to just make something together for our selves and at the same time spending a bit more so we could donate a charity organisation; like giving yourself 2 presents. Now 3 years later the books got so much more professional as our first books and also print the book in larger numbers so we get a better price for all of us. This book is of course is the first time a publishing house is doing the printing, the exhibition and the marketing things we don't know how to organize and don't have the right connections to do so.
If we would send all photographers a copy it would cost us 103 x 60 = around 6000 euros. The total profit of the book will be around the same amount so if we would give you all a copy there is no money left to donate. So this is not an option.
Considering that the most of us have fancy cameras I don't think a lot of us no matter where they are from are living in poverty and couldn't afford the book. Of course the publishing house will earn money with our book while we are donating the money but in exchange we all get something something very important and that is real publicity. If we get more and more publicity and sell more and more book. we might even be able to send all photographers a free book but I guess that will take a while.

We did get a few free copies so If you can't afford the book you can get one of the free copies if you pay for the postal costs your self, I am at the moment not able to pay for this too.

Hi Gido,
How are you? Its been a long time that I am out of photography and kujaja's updates due to some issues and my email id was also been hacked.
Today, I just came to know that the World Photography Street Books is in it's way. A recent conversation also shows that one of my photographs has been indexed on this book, page no. 155. Would you please refer a link or detailed information in this regards or mail me please. It will be grateful.

2015-05-19 22:54:20
Yeah getting track of what has been said and written here is a big problem, it is even hard to reach the people who are in the book if it is really nessecary.. but it is even worse at media like facebook, one wrong click and the message you wanted to read is gone.. do you know that feeling?

Thanks Maja!

BTW you all have to know that the photos which are chosen for the exhibition are photos which were chosen by the aspect of being able to sell to others. People can buy a print of the photo that is why these photos have been chosen, this does not mean that other photos were less good or that these are the best photos from the book. We of course think that all photos in the book are brilliant!
(to the profit of the photos sold, we already had a discussion about this, the profits belong to the photographers, and it is their private decision what they do with it. Perhaps we will get some numbers at the end a lot of the money will be donated, still there have to be buyers to sell a photo... But the exhibition goes on for quit a long time (25 June - 15 Aug) so I guess the chances are good)

This book took us a lot of time.... When we started we did way more books as we are doing now but we are more perfect-ionizing the books and this cost a lot of work. But All work for this book has been done, and we will now finally move on to the "above" book. The only thing left I have to do is hang up guestbooks at all photos at the exhibition so the photographers will know later what people who saw the photo thought about there photo even if they wouldn't be able to visit the exhibition. (a great idea from Noppadol Maitreechit)

If any of you is interested in making an own book with an own subject, we are happy to help out and open the project here and sort all things out with our help. Of course your book with other photographers has to support a Charity organisation (which you can of course also decide yourself)

I can already tell you our next project;
In the next WSP book we want photos only taken in this year. Which of course has to do with being able to publish a yearly new book and not a new book with old photos. But my thought was, what about all those other great photos... Since Street photography also reflects a society within a certain time it would be a great loss for coming generations not to be able to see these photos. For we are not a facebook group, where the rights of the photos you upload immediately belong to facebook or a photo vogue, but independent (thank to all your donations for the website) and have way more information about the photos and you all, with which we are able to create a database for street photography which shows a country,city,street in a place in time.
I think if we mark our photos a bit better, in 50 years people can go look here and check out how did; Paris or any other town in the world look like in 2018 or . Of course street photography is not documentary photography only and way more art then just a documentary photo
But there are also great street photos like these:
http://world-street.photography/en/photo/48795
or the photos shot in 1968 in Paris from Clausib:
http://world-street.photography/en/clausib

photos which all reflect what is going on in a city, this is of course not what street photography is all about. On the other hand also Orna's photo reflect a time in place which should not to be forgotten:
http://world-street.photography/en/photo/25891

I will add a special site for all your photos where you can order your photo into a time and place quicker. We still have other database problems at the moment as soon as they are over you will see the new functions. I hope you all also like the new idea.

have a great evening or day!

Hi Gido, I have a question similar to Piotr. I'm trying to buy the book, but I can't complete the order. It seems that my card (Visa Electron) is non accepted, because doesn't belong to the circuit paypal. How can I buy the book?
Gido
2015-05-15 18:54:03
Hi Valeria,

we don't have a solution for other credit cards at the moment...I also don't see a solution in the near future. You can of course send the money to my bank account but I prefer to keep the accounts separated. But I am sure Paypal also accepts normal bank accounts.

Dear regards

Dear Guido, I would love to order the book but i don't intend to open paypal account for it, can do paymant with visa without third party, any chance?
Gido
2015-05-15 18:56:28
No I can't there is always a third party involved even with Visa. It would be of course be good to have an own paying system but that would mean also another contract for kujaja.com or WSP and more programming... since we have slight database problems we will have to solve this first before we invest more into an own paying system...
Gido
2015-05-11 16:11:46
It is official now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
there were still some things which needed to be taken care of but now the contract is signed by both parties!!!

The exhibition and book openenig party will start at thursday the 25th of june at 19:00 and go on till the 15th of August 2015.

you are all of course invited to come! Hamburg is a great city and during the openenig there are a lot of other photography exhibitions.


We still need to get 46 preorders, so if you have friends who want the book too, it's best to preorder as soon as you can.
After the first 100 preorders are made I'll show you were you can continue to order the book.

have a great new week!

Dear Gido,

I have a question. I want to buy book from Poland. Price is 59 euro,but I can buy two books? why?:) Maby I will by byu two books for my friend also and then will be more less..? And maby you know of date of exhibition, becouse I want to come to Hamburg?

and another question :):) When I checked link with my photos in the book I have only one photo,now I see I,m in four pages in the book,and I don,t know wchich my photos are in the book:) Can you help me?:)

Once again thank you for youur work!!! Best regards Kasia
Gido
2015-05-10 14:37:47
Hi Katarzyna,
you can all help out calculating the right price from this page

https://www.dhl.de/de/paket/pakete-versenden/weltweit-versenden.html
the book is unfortunately 1.1 kg, that is of course totally silly cause it is 250 grams to heavy for the cheapest postal price, if I would have known this earlier we would have take more photos in the book....
but I douldnt weight the book yet so take 1.5 kg to be 100% sure and 150 grams of packaging. so 2 or 3 books can be send to poland for 15,99 https://www.dhl.de/de/paket/pakete-versenden/weltweit-versenden/laenderseiten/polen.html
plus 3 euros packaging
so 18,99, plus 2 books (2x39,99) makes 98,97 you can send this to our paypal account [email protected] but pls make the right calculation.
For you are from over 100 countries it is too hard for me to get the right packaging price for all countries.

that not the correct photos appear on your account is also of course a bad programming bug... I really hope that the opposite didn't happen too (like having a photo there but not being on the list of people in the book) I'send you an email with the links to the right photos.

btw after the 100 pre orders are made, you cant order anymore here anymore, for then the orders will be proceed over the publishing house and they take over. I also don't know how many copies will stay at the onlineshop of the publishing house and how many copies go away in stores...
we now almost sold 50 copies...I hope we can get the 100 this week.

the exhibition should start at the Friday (I guess evening) the 26th of June till the 15th of august. The opening Friday will of course contain a small opening party (I guess) but don't book a flight to Hamburg already till I confirm this for 100% some things might go wrong still or might change...I should know on monday/tuesday I don't think your photo is at the exhibition, at least I cant remember.
the exhibition is in a small gallery which isn't there yet and this exhibition is their first exhibition, at least this is the way I understood it.
It starts a bit late but it will still be on the weekend of the foto triniale where there are several other photo exhibitions all around the city, but the triniale ends after the first weekend of the exhibition, our exhibition then will continue.

as soon as I know more I tell you!

dear regards

I am of course very happy that you are all very happy too :-)

To the people who ask if they are in the book or not. The list below is a copy of the photographers index of the book, we have double tripple and more checked if this list is okay and if there are NO mistakes made, so the list really is the real thing. We won't change anything. The list is the list. there are no mistakes.

In Some cases I see that the postal price is too high, there are some other ways to send the book within europe for a less money. But I prefer to leave the postal costs as they are now, if your package cost less we will refund the difference.
For example Achim paid too much already... and Maja too, I see that the price for 2 books to Switzerland cost 26,90 in total and not what she paid now... the postal costs are too complicated to get this into paypal or programming on the fly... Normally we send the book as a book parcel but because it weighs too much we have to change in some cases to a normal parcel in some cases not... totally complicated... we WILL refund your money if you paid too much postal costs!

I really hope we get together the total of preorders!!!

have a great weekend and thank you too, without you all this book could never have been made :-)

Another update to the book. Today I will go to the publishing house to get the official papers.
Unfortunately Olympus won't be sponsoring the book. They are very interested and love it all but it was not possible to get the money needed in such short time. They want to be updated and sponsor next years book. We will see what happens then, we keep our fingers crossed. Of course we also wanted a sponsoring for the website....
The PDF gets send to the printing company today, there is one page left, if you want to sponsor the book printing there are 6 hours left....
For we now need to pay part of the production our self we need to start the pre ordering from today.
The book is way thicker then last years book, it will also weight more then last year. Therefor the shipping cost go up 10 Euros, that is of course not nice but you will get way way more photos and stories to read as last year. If we find a cheaper delivery service we will of course give you back the difference over Paypal.
We will have a few weeks to collect our part of the printing costs, but it would be great if you want to order the book to order it quicker then that (before I get a heart attack, for I will need to pay the missing part if we wont make it in time).

The book will be priced like last year 39.99 Euros plus 20 Euros packing and postal costs world wide. German buyers pay only 7 euro for the postal costs are way less.
Total amount of copies is 1,000 I got 4 copies for free for people who can't afford the book but are in the book, for we did not get sponsored it would be great if the people who get a free copy pay for the postal costs.

It has a hardcover, contains 232 pages (100 more then last year), contains 180 photos from 105 photographers. We always thank all people who joined the project, in this case we had to print 1,095 names. 7,735 photos were uploaded in total. The intro is of course from Lauren Rautenbach, the editing was done by Bailey Cooper, Corrections made by Harm Poelman, Jo Williams, and Francisco Marty. Design is also again from Eva Maria Kroder. Cover Photo Rudy Boyer. The book contains the same reportage (from the Orpahange in Kalkotta) as the first book made by Anirban Mukhopadhay and Soumya Shankar Ghosal.

The company who will publish it is the Gudberg Nerger Verlag. You'll find them here: http://publishing.gudbergnerger.com/publications/
The book will also be in selected Book stores around Germany and in some special Art book stores in Europe and the USA.

PRE ORDER THE BOOK HERE

Thank you!

Hi Vu,
at the moment we are waiting for the publishing house. They are looking for a sponsor for the book (and the website). They told me they are talking with Olympus,but for this is a big company it will take a few days before we get a confirmation. The book needs to be at the printing house at the 10th of Mai to be publish on the day of the exhibition, till that day the publishing house and we want to wait with printing. If Olympus doesn't want to sponsor us they will of course look for another company.

If we get the book sponsored we don't need to pay our part of the printing costs and don't need a specified number of preorders which of course is good for us.

The exhibition will start within the 18th and 24th of June, the exact day I didn't get yet, I am trying to get the 18th or 19th as a start date so the exhibition will be within the event "Triennalle der Photographie Hamburg" which is a big event where there are numerous photography exhibition all in Hamburg. It would be great if that all works out for then there are a lot of people in Hamburg who come for photography exhibitions from every where, which means of course a lot more visitors.

If I hear more I will of course tell you.
As soon as the PDF is at the printing house you can all preorder the book of course.
Meanwhile we are already working on the "from above" photo book... we hope we can get that one too before the exhibition..

dear regards
Gido (KJ)

Hi Gido
maybe the link which you just shared is not working for me, i was in the previous selection could plz tell me know whether i am there in the final selection or not
Thank you
Gido

Hi Rana,

if your photo is not in the selection anymore it is not in the book. We don't really like to tell all reasons to all people separately but main reasons are:
- The photo was not available in high resolution.
- We couldn't find a photo which fit to another photo and we couldn't put the photo over 2 pages.
- There was no text no profile photo and only 1 or 2 photos in the profile and the person didn't reply to any of our emails
- There was a profile photo which did not belong to the photographer.
- The high Resolution photo was an upsized of the low resolution photo.
- Looking closer at the photo, the photo was broken (too much sharpening, too much editing).
- A book which is stitched like ours always need to have a number of pages which can be divided into 4 so:
if 2 photos fall out because of any of the above reasons 2 others also fall out or we need 2 new photos which is way harder to get then to take 2 out.
if the texts gets longer then excepted we can shorten the texts but not too much, so also the text of all photographers make the amount of pages go up or down.
if a photo gets added, we also need to see if the texts of the photographers still will fit, for example if we add a photo and then the photographers text need 2 pages more
- Time, in this case our biggest problem, for we had to get all missing information in the book and tried to do the best with it in the time possible. If we had endless time we could have been waiting and moving the contents of the book so long till all fit in... but at some point we need to make a cut and move forwards...

I am sorry your photo got out of the book it is a real lost!

dear regards
Gido

Hi All,

yesterday I was at the publishing house, some good news some bad news.
First the bad news, a few people didn't make it into the book after all. After putting all photos in place there are always some photos which didnt fit in or we couldnt find a place for it or information is missing or still even only lowres photos were available. I am sorry if you are now not in the book anymore.
you can check if you are still in the book with the magic link: http://world-street.photography/en/myaccount/booktext/street-photography-book-nominations or
http://www.kujaja.com/en/myaccount/booktext/street-photography-book-nominations


Good news, 2 entire books will be used to make a big mosaic of all pages of the book and this will hang on one wall of the exhibition room, so kind of all photos will be shown at the exhibition.
I let the publishin house choice the photos which will be at the exhibition below you find the list of people who will be exhibited.
All photographers have been contacted, if some photographers don't reply or don't want to be on the exhibition there might of course be a new list.

dear regards
Gido
