Driven printer and publisher Gerhard Steidl travels the globe to collaborate with world-renowned photographers on art books that are masterpieces in their own right. A publisher with four decades of experience, Steidl is in such demand that the typical wait for a meeting with him is four years.

In this film, art lovers get the unique opportunity to follow the celebrated publisher as he collaborates with such notable photographers as Robert Adams, Ed Ruscha, and Joel Sternfeld to bring their works to the masses in a way that keeps the integrity of the original images well intact. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
