Photographer #076: Reiner Riedler

Reiner Riedler, Austria, 1968, is a photographer who has published various books. In 2009 his book Fake Holidays came out, bizarre photographs of fake places that give people a sence of adventure or a way to escape their daily life. In his most recent series Between the Lines, Reiner is trying to simulate scenes from novels he reads, thus giving his visual interpretation through staged photographs. Riedler has also travelled extensively, amongst which are many trips to Eastern Europe. Several images have been combined in his series On the way. The following images come from Fake Holidays, Between the Lines and On the way.
