Aus­tri­ans un­der the gaze in the 1970s

The National - News - The Review - - Round Up -

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. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.al­bertina.at.
