DRIFTWOOD – here comes the second round!

I’m thrilled to announce Driftwood No. 5, which will contain photographs from Warsaw, Poland, 2016/2017.

Like with Driftwood No. 1-4, the zine edition is limited to 50 copies, and available as a bundle of 4: Order once and get each new zine when it is published, approx. every three months, in our mailbox.

All those subscribers from the first round who order the second round, too, will get an extra thank you-gift with Driftwood 5.

Get Driftwood 1-4 now
(only 3 complete sets left)

Order the next 4 zines: Driftwood 5-8

Driftwood 5 will ship in the last week of April.

DRIFTWOOD 2 | AMERIKA

Yesterday’s test print looks awesome! Lesson learned: 60 pages on 100g paper are probably the maximum that goes with staple binding. But, ey! It’s a zine, not arty farty. The edition is supposed to be printed this week and will then go out to all subscribers.

I want my Driftwood, too!

Driftwood 1 | Berlin / Review

„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.

cr5d3_20160503-088

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:
http://www.deutsche-fotografische-akademie.com/tagungen

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:

Thank you for your interest + see you soon
