It’s easy to reduce a city to stereotypes, distilling landmarks to short paragraph summaries designed for easy consumption.
Some might say: you’re making things too complicated; they’ve got to be simpler. That misguided sentiment needlessly and carelessly minimizes the diversity and complexity of a city, her people, and the infrastructure through which citizens reside, navigate, and thrive. Although I chased after traces of Otto Wagner throughout Vienna, I’m also interested in illuminating the city as reflections from past and present and as glimpses of resident and visitor.
Vienna is an exceptional city
- on the blue Danube,
- whose historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site,
- that’s home to one of the four world headquarters of the United Nations,
- and home to over 100 years of the arts and culture movement known as “Vienna Modernism”.

I made the photos above on 15, 16, 18, 19, and 20 May 2018, entirely with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-c1Z.
