Before starting an accomplished career as Senior Picture Editor of Stern in Hamburg, Andreas Trampe worked as a photographer, creating stories with local papers by recording important events, including the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Today, Trampe works with countless photographers at the weekly magazine, and is constantly searching for new talent at festivals and portfolio reviews all over the world.
We’re honored and proud that Trampe is a jury member for this year’s LensCulture Street Photography Awards. In this interview, he speaks with Cat Lachowskyj about the shifting state of magazines and photojournalism, and discusses common mistakes that photographers make when submitting their work for publishing consideration.
