Austrians under the gaze in the 1970s
It was not until the 1970s that Austrian photographers began to turn their lens on their own country and society. In this exhibition in Vienna, the work of gifted photographers such as Bernhard Fuchs, Lisl Ponger and Heinz Cibulka are on display. It was a time that also ushered in new ways of working, and a distinct documentary style of photography emerged. There are images of farms; tables of food; rural workers; and children. And while the images have a sense of immediacy, there is also a feeling of a world about to disappear forever. Austria: Photography, 1970 to 2000 runs at the Albertina until October 8.
