5th European Month of Photography Berlin

October 19-November 25, 2012



The festival presents a broad spectrum of exhibitions and events that address this year's theme, "The View of the Other".  It highlights, from various perspectives, a variety of thematic and medial aspects: topics such as the construction of identity, exoticisation, colonialism, voyeurism, reflections on the familiar and the alien and much more.

Ikea is is turning to 3-D graphics, instead of photography, to help sell furniture and household goods in its current catalog.  Can you tell the difference?

The Wall Street Journal reports that IKEA is slowly moving away from using photography in its catalogs in favor of CGI for its online and print publications.
