Driftwood 1 | Berlin / Review

Christian Reister

„The narrative leads us to a Berlin by night, with indefinite streets, where we stayed in suspense about what might happen around us. (…)“

Hamburg/Deichtorhallen Portfolio Walk was not crowded, but nice! Many thanks to everyone who stopped by. Especially to Ken Schles and Wolfgang Zurborn for taking their time + giving me honest, inspiring and encouraging feedback on my work.

I’m invited to show my work at „Portfolio Walk“ at Deichtorhallen, Hamburg. That means: a table, my books on it, me behind it. Many more tables and photographers will be around + lectures the whole weekend long:

Stop by, if you are around.
It is free and open for everyone!
And yes, I will have a brandnew book dummy with me, that nobody has seen before.

 

DRIFTWOOD 1 | Berlin

I have received a lot of positive feedback about the first issue of Driftwood and the publishing idea behind it. I’d like to point out this personal review by Eric Paslitzky:

„(…) Ich kenne die vorangegangenen Publikationen von Christian Reister und muss anerkennend feststellen, dass die Fotografien in dem Heft an Dichte gewonnen haben. Sie sind nicht das, was man man vielleicht primär mit Reisters Arbeiten verbindet – Nachtleben in Berlin in den verschiedensten Facetten, einschließlich diverser Freaks. Reister konzentriert sich in den Fotografien dieses Heftes stärker als zuvor auf das Grafische des Gesehenen. Es bleibt bei einer angenehmen Beiläufigkeit in der Schilderung, die auf alles Nebensächliche verzichtet, in einer unaufdringlichen Dramturgie. Gleichwohl kann man sich jede der Fotografien auch als singulären großformatigen Print vorstellen. Mit gefällt das Bekenntnis zu Korn und Unschärfe, was zur Geschlossenheit der Arbeit beiträgt. Einzig bei einigen Querformaten hätte ich mir bei Satz und Heftung etwas mehr Rücksicht auf das Bild an sich gewünscht. Ich habe die gesamte Serie abonniert und bin gespannt auf die weiteren Ausgaben.“

Danke, Eric. More about Driftwood:

Beyond The Ring

2015/11/25
Christian Reister

Beyond-the-ring-CR

Invitation!

‚Beyond the Ring‘ is an informal set of artists‘ talks/presentations/performances by international artists based in Berlin and visiting artists passing through. They will take place in a studio in Walterstr. 30, Neukoelln. ‚Beyond the Ring‘ is there to provide the opportunity for people to meet and share their thoughts, ideas and work. If you’re interested in joining in, you will see that there is life Beyond the Ring in Berlin.

Christian Reister, * 1972, has been living and working in Berlin for almost twenty years. The city and its inhabitants are the main inspiration for his photographic work which is situated somewhere between the poles of subjective documentation and street – and portrait photography. His work has been published in Journals and daily papers and presented at various exhibitions.

Since 2010 four self-edited photo books have been published. At the Artist’s Talk series “Beyond the Ring” Christian will be discussing his work focusing on his most recent book “Alle Katzen Grau” (All Cats are Grey)– a dark, tough and occasionally quite bizarre journey through endless Berlin nights.

Thurs Dec 3rd at 8pm, Walterstr. 30, Neukoelln
