Réhahn: The Artist
Known for being the photographer that captures the souls of his subjects, Réhahn is more than just a man behind a camera. Behind each click is a story—an ethnic girl with startling blue eyes, a woman pulling a needle through indigo fabric, a man walking alone down a brightly painted street—these stories and the passion to learn more about the culture, diversity, and changing traditions of his subjects are what drives Réhahn’s world-renowned work.
Réhahn’s unique combination of Fine Art Photography and documentary styles results in images that both inform and mesmerize. His portraits of Vietnam, Cuba, and India are particularly well known for exactly this reason. They take the viewer along on a voyage to catch a glimpse of authentic interactions with people, their smiles, their wisdom, their daily lives. “Réhahn’s patient style of working means he often spends days or weeks with the [people] that is photographing, strikes up relationships, and makes repeat visits.” (Post Magazine, August 2018) For Réhahn, photography is a way to approach people, to document what is happening in the present while also learning about the traditions and heritage of their past.
