life - selected portraits and documentary
Sebastian Unterreitmeier

Sebastian Unterreitmeier, born in Thuringia in 1976, started up at the age of 16 by working in a friend’s photo shop. There he discovered the magic of photography and began to take photos himself. After a couple of years of studying, testing and taking all kinds of analogue photos, he started with what he still prefers doing today: portraits.
Sebastian uses mostly middleformat films. He likes the limitation on just a couple of pictures per film. It helps him to concentrate on the scenery: The search for the (im)perfect moment has begun.
Sebastian never takes flash photos. “Natural light interacts not only with the film, but also with the people on the film: The best reason not to mess around with it.”
