About Conscientious Photo Magazine

Conscientious Photography Magazine is a website dedicated to contemporary fine-art photography. It offers profiles of photographers, in-depth interviews, photobook reviews, and general articles about photography and related issues.

Founder and editor Jörg M. Colberg began publishing Conscientious in 2002. American Photo included Colberg in their list of “Photography Innovators of 2006,” writing “a new generation of thought leaders has emerged to give photographers and photography fans new avenues of information.”

In addition to working on Conscientious, Colberg has contributed articles/essays to magazines and artist monographs. He is the author of Understanding Photobooks: The Form and Content of the Photographic Book (Focal Press, 2016) and of Photography’s Neoliberal Realism (MACK 2020). His first photobook, Vaterland, was published in 2020 by Kerber Verlag.

Colberg has taught at a number of universities including the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the University of Hartford.
