Horst Friedrichs was born in Frankfurt and studied at the Munich Academy of Photography. His book, 20th-Century Mods, follows the contemporary British Mod scene. We asked him how he first became interested in it: ‘In the 80s, my friends in Germany were Mods so when I moved to London 1997, I was curious about the Mod scene in the UK. After a bit of research, I discovered The New Untouchables, sophisticated and stylish Mod people who share a true love of quality vintage and 60s music. I started to go to their club nights and scooter runs to photograph them’. Read the rest of this interview at Feature Shoot.
Austrian photographer Reiner Riedler’s latest series — Fake Holidays — is based around the theme of simulation. It’s been exhibited at Kunsthalle Schirn in Frankfurt and will be released as a book later this year.
