Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I hope all is well. Please excuse my newsletter hiatus.
I have exciting news to share with you: two group shows in the U.S. and Germany, a grant from the Puffin Foundation, a forthcoming solo exhibition at the Center for Photography at Woodstock (CPW), and the @wpanyc Instagram takeover.
Additionally, I am getting ready for my trip to Europe, which will lead me to Brittany, France where I will photograph the remains of the Atlantic Wall fortifications, and to Germany where I will portray and interview Germans who lived through World War II for my project, What Remains of the Day – Memories of World War II. Please also check out this project on my website as I have added portraits and photos from the D-Day Beaches that I photographed last summer.
I’ll have a lot more news to share in August, so please stay tuned. I hope you have a wonderful summer.
Warmest wishes, Gesche Würfel

Puffin Grant and forthcoming CPW Solo Exhibition
I have just found out that I was awarded a grant from the Puffin Foundation for my forthcoming solo exhibition At the Hands of Persons Unknown at the Center for Photography (CPW) at Woodstock that will open on August 25, 2018. Thank you to CPW and the Puffin Foundation! I will send out more detailed information about the show later this summer.
In March, I attended The International Meeting Place Portfolio Review at FotoFest in Houston, which was as amazing as ever. I had the chance to meet many wonderful reviewers and photographers.
