Christian Reister is a photographer and self-publisher from Berlin. He mainly shoots personal work in the subjects of street photography and portraiture. He publishes his projects, often photographed over many years, in books and in his own zine series “Driftwood” (12 issues since 2016).

im Rahmen des Monat der Fotografie-OFF Berlin 2020

Ich werde Previews auf neue Arbeiten zeigen, Portaitserien und Siebdrucke.
Und es gibt natürlich auch Bücher und Zines.

Es wird leider keine Vernissage geben, da die Räume klein sind und nur wenige gleichzeitig rein können. Bitte bringt Masken mit und haltet euch an die üblichen Regeln. Auch wenn die Umstände sind, wie sie sind, freue ich mich auf ein besonderes Wochenende!

I will show previews of new works, portrait series and silkscreen prints.
And of course there will be books and zines.

Unfortunately, there will be no vernissage, because the rooms are small and only a few can enter at the same time. Please bring masks and stick to the usual rules. Even if the circumstances are as they are, I am looking forward to a special weekend!
