Christoph Niemann, Philipp Keel


This elaborate book features over 160 ink and pencil drawings by Christoph Niemann, each a story of an unfamiliar place. They are observations on traveling, arriving and immersing oneself, on the melancholy of being on the road and the adventure of discovering new destinations-among them New York, Paris, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Seville and Kyoto. Regardless of their subjects, these are all iconic sketches, capable of grasping the magic, light and mood of a place in a handful of virtuoso strokes. In Niemann’s own words, in Souvenir “over time memories change. Most things fade, while others become more significant. Connections arise that one wasn’t aware of originally. Sometimes a drawing can capture all this in a new and surprising way. And with some luck, the picture feels as authentic as the moment itself.”

Christoph Niemann is one of the world’s most in-demand artists.Der Tagesspiegel, Berlin
