“A Picture for Home” is made up of works by photographers who are close to Schaden.com during the last 15 years. It will bring together 420 members of the Schaden.com family (210 photographers and 210 collectors/photobook fans) in a huge event during Paris Photo 2011.

Each invited photographer chooses a photograph they’d consider “A Picture for Home.” The prints are signed by the photographer for "Schaden.com Friends Collection”. An important supplement to the project will be a catalogue including reproductions of each print.

At “The Schaden-Night of the Year” on November 10th the lottery-draw and subsequent pairings (print with proud new owner) will take place at the David Lynch Night Club SILENCIO.
