PUBLIC—Editorial Design from Cairo 

Publishing can take a myriad of forms and formats, which are united in the act of making things public.

Photographic Studies

Archives are storages, which carry the responsibility of universal knowledge, but if you look closer they are so much more. They are the basis of the recapturement and redefinement of communities, which require former knowledge to change. Universities and their communities are constantly changing, as different personalities create, research, and work together. So what could be more interesting than an archive of one of these universities. The photography degree courses of the Dortmund University of… learn more
