What began in 2010, when Clemens Mitscher and Martin Liebscher created the non-profit project stage-photography.com, has extended beyond the university boundaries to become a recognized project. Seventeen students are part of stage-photography.com, the project from the photography teaching department at HfG. Seventeen young artists who are realizing their passion for photography and music at numerous gigs through expressive images. A work which has provided inspiration beyond the confines of the university and this year has achieved its high point to date, thanks to the cooperation with Melt! and numerous supporters from the photo industry. At the internationally acclaimed music festival in July 2011, which has been honoured with the title "Artist's Favourite European Festival" award, the students had the opportunity to document numerous musical stage performances using photography and film.
