Václav Reischl (Germany)

Václav Reischl was born in Větřní, Czech Republic in 1947. In 1972 he graduated from the Film and TV Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU) in Prague and one year later he emigrated to Germany.
Just a few years later, in 1978, he founded, together with Jurák Lipták, the photo and film production company R&L. Thanks to their successful commercial photographic work, they were also able to produce various independent fiction and non-fiction films and could realize various photography exhibitions. In the last few years, Reischl was also able to realize a couple of projects together with his daughter Tine Reischl (NurLimonade Media Productions Amsterdam, Netherlands).
Václav Reischl’s photography experience ranges from artistic experimental and social photography to a wide range of commercial photography all over the world (Europe, United States, Oman, Canada, China and many other countries).
