Rainer Elstermann

Rainer Elstermann

Rainer Elstermann was born in West-Berlin in 1965.
He took his first self-portrait-photographs when he was 17 years old.
In 1983 when he was 18 he started working with the avantgarde experimental super-8 film production company Teufelsberg Produktion. In 1984 he began being seriously involved with photography after his uncle gave him a complete dark-room equipment.
Further encouragment came by the way of famous fashion photographer Paolo Roversi who photographed R.E. for Italien Vogue in 1985. After seeing his portfolio he insisted R.R. should be a fashion photographer in Paris.
Instead R.E. moved to London in 1988 where he remained until 1992, realizing little art projects and exploring photography. First assignements followed.
In 1999 R.E. started his studio as an advertising photographer.
From 2006 R.E.projects moved again towards Art photography and since 2009 he is exclusively concentrating on Art.
