Christian Reister is a photographer who seems to relish change and movement, and the natural dynamism of cities and people. Perhaps best known for his photographs of Alexanderplatz – collected together in his wonderful book “Alex” – Reister’s work is about capturing the life stories of ordinary people and the environments that bear silent witness to those tales. Though known as a street photographer, Christian could just as well be described as a documentary historian. His camera takes in a broad sweep of citizenry and places: the (unfashionably) unkempt and the grey-haired as well as the dashing and dramatic.
