40多年来,Gerhard Steidl秉持着流淌于德国人血液中的严谨和一丝不苟的精神,同包括Martin Parr、Joel Sternfeld、Robert Frank、Ed Ruscha、Karl Lagerfeld、Günter Grass、Robert Adams、Jeff Wall在内的世界上最优秀的摄影师合作,从设计编排、制作到印刷出版的每一个环节都倾力倾为、全力以赴,只为“从技术上帮助艺术家把他们的艺术理念变成现实”。

关于史泰德(Steidl):

史泰德(Steidl)出版社位于德国的哥廷根,以出版高质量的摄影画册闻名。对于其创始人Gerhard Steidl来说,他的出版理念就是艺术家是国王,出版人是仆人。史泰德平均一年出版120本书,其中很多都是世界顶级摄影大师的作品。Gerhard Steidl说道, “我拍了几年以后,发现对自己的工作一点儿也不满意,我不愿意让我的职业生涯终止在一个三流艺术家身上,总是要仰望周围比我更优秀的人,我想,和那些伟大的艺术家共事该是件令人兴奋的事情,这就是史泰德出版公司创办的由来。 ”  (Gerhard Steidl访问全文

For 40 years, Gerhard Steidl has combined the roles of printer and publisher, resolved to personally check each sheet leaving his printing shop in Göttingen. This perfectionism, combined with an unconditional love for books, for the traditional printing craft, and a commitment to the quality standards of manufacturing (in the original sense of the word, made by hand), has gained worldwide attention.

The most internationally renowned photographic artists vie for the opportunity to collaborate with Gerhard Steidl, to conceive and produce the perfect publication with him. Filmed in the direct cinema style, HOW TO MAKE A BOOK WITH STEIDL (Trailer) observes the publisher, as he collaborates with the world famous photographers Joel Sternfeld, Robert Frank, Ed Ruscha, Jeff Wall and Robert Adams.
