The Society for Humanistic Photography (Gesellschaft für Humanistische Fotografie – GfHF) promotes engaged auteur photography that focuses on socially relevant issues since its foundation in 2006. In solo and group exhibitions, realized in collaboration with museums and cultural institutions in Germany and abroad, as well as in the public sphere, the GfHF presents the works of both renowned and emerging contemporary photographers. Using innovative multimedia formats, online and print publications, workshops for professional photographers, as well as art education programs the GfHF sets important thematic and aesthetic accents within the current confusing image and media flood, and contributes to the public debate about social and political issues.
In April 2017 the GfHF opened their own exhibition space for international author photography in Berlin Mitte:
