Seven days a week, the photo editorial department of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (F.A.Z.) commissions, sifts through and selects photos for the various F.A.Z. publications and channels. Every day, more than 15,000 photos are received from a wide variety of sources. A guided tour with Department Head Henner Flohr allows participants a rare look behind the scenes. With the help of the daily influx of images, the selection processes and the evolving importance of journalistic photography will be discussed. We will also have a fresh look at the next day’s newspaper. In addition, one of the editorial photographers will talk to the FFF Academy visitors about his daily assignments for the newspaper.
