Marks of Honour is a photo book project and exhibition organised and curated by Nina Poppe and Verena Loewenhaupt.
MoH was conceived in order to reveal the inspiration that a new generation of photographers have gained from the history of photography in the form of books.
13 international photographers were invited to pay artistic tribute to a publication that has been influential to their own work.
All participating works are limited to three copies, each containing the original photo book and its accompanying homage.
The exhibiton MoH/08 displays the variety of inspirational sources and their tributes through a combination of different media.
Marks of Honour is an ongoing project that aims to create a striking library of contemporary photo books.
