Books : Fake Holiday by Reiner Riedler

Austrian Photographer Reiner Riedler has presented his latest project launching it as a book called "Fake Holiday". The Book is the result of a documentary work which took him to travel in different part of the world photographing the many artificial way to go holiday.
Here a short essay written by Jens Lindworsky
When wishes are out of reach, simulation is taking over our leisure time and our holidays. Imaginary worlds are created, often under massive technological exertion, in order to offer us experience as reproducible merchandise. Although the quality of these adventures on demand sometimes proves to be rather dubious, the boom does shed light on one thing: the yearnings and dreams underlying people’s daily lives.
