René Fietzek likes to tell stories. However, after studying theater, film, and media in Vienna, he realized there was something that he liked even more: visualizing them. In pursuit of this dream, he continued to study visual communication in Hamburg and finished as a photo designer at Lette-Verein in Berlin. René’s stories always have two sides. Without focusing too clearly on either, his photographs are able to reveal both vulnerability and determination, in one glance. Subtly emphasized by a skillful combination of soft shapes and playful patterns, they often display a very natural kind of innocence. It seems that René captures the exact instant before an ideal moment, gently fueling our imagination.
