    Is there anyone here able to put some words here about photography in Germany today, as e.g. what are main themes for German photo based artist. Or even to say where on internet I can find it.

    Thanks

    Daniel, I've been to quite a few exhibition here in the UK, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany itself, and seen the work of a great many German photographers.

    While photography there is quite diverse there is a kind of German School of Photographers heavily influenced by the Bechers.

    Here's a link that will give you a start. German Photography

    Here's a few important names:

    Bernd Becher & Hilla Becher
    Thomas Ruff
    Thomas Struth
    Andreas Gursky
