Me_(c)-Sebastian-Reiser.jpg
 

Sebastian Reiser was born in 1986. Lived in Andorf (Austria) and moved to Graz in 2009. In 2007 he acquired his first camera and began to enter the world of photography. A few years later he discovered his love for analogue photography. This medium has since accompanied him through light and shadow cues. In contrast to the fast paced life, it is the everyday moments in their simplicity, banality and gentle melancholy he captures and decelerates. He get unexciting places in the light of the lens identity. The photos look beautiful at the same time calmly and complex, informal and self-conscious and allow a second look at the world through his eyes.
