Since its inception in 2002, Jörg's website, Conscientious, has become one of the most widely read and influential blogs dedicated to contemporary fine art photography.

In 2006, American Photo included Jörg in its list of the year's Photography Innovators. In 2011, picked Conscientious for one of its photo blog awards, writing: “There's not an ounce of fluff here, which is why Conscientious is rightly seen and lauded as one of the very few essential photography destinations on the web.”

In addition to writings published online, Jörg has been published in photography and design magazines across the world (British Journal of PhotographyCreative ReviewChinese Photography MagazineFOAM Magazine, and more) and in photographers' monographs. 

Jörg's first book, Understanding Photobooks: The Form and Content of the Photographic Book, was released by Focal Press in early 2017.
