An interview with Joachim Schmid

Joachim Schmid, Archiv #73
"I’m pretty much finished with the publishing world, because I don’t have any respect for those people. It’s really sad how the publishing world changed during the past 20-30 years. Most publishers are not publishers anymore, they are money-collecting agents. They make books which are financed by museums or galleries or sometimes even by the artists themselves. Their curatorial or editorial authority is extremely questionable. It’s a completely corrupt world." 

It's always refreshing to speak with found photography godfather Joachim Schmid: clear ideas, outspoken, genuine.

I had a pleasure to have a long conversation with him last September during this year's SI Fest, you can read it all on Klat magazine (scroll down for the English version).
