Florian Reischauer – Grüß Gott

Interviews with Photographers March 22, 2013 8:21 am

Florian, can you tell me a little about your personal project, Grüß Gott – a fairy tale?

i started it a year ago and i went to the village where i was born several times to cover one year. it was important to me to show/see the place changing in one year in case of seasons, which is a permanent cycle. the people and traditions dont change that much – mostly not at all – only the surroundings like a loop. i left that place when i was 19 and i only come back to see my family which is very close to me.

the longer i am away, memories from my childhood start to fade and things become more and more surrealistic in a way. things like religion, people dressing up in uniforms and so on.

my everyday life in a metrople like Berlin differs almost 100% to the life back there on the countryside. i always wanted todo a photo project about that place. at the beginning i didnt exactly know where i will end up – now i think i created a little fairy tale.

i wanted to create a story with an common thread, that will be seen or felt by the recipient. in what way i actually dont care. that should be created by oneself individually.
