This photo blog ist about Vienna (Austria), where I live.
On this pre-Instagram established photo blog I will introduce you to my personal view on Vienna. What’s going on right now, what is fascinating, what makes me wonder and so on.
Generally, all photos without a reference to the photographer are taken by me.
For the curious among you … this is me
Six random facts about me:
I love pickled gherkins and can easily have a glass of it
I used to live in California and Germany
One of my favourite novels is “Eine blaßblaue Frauenschrift” by Franz Werfel
I am a historian by training
Most of the time I take my pictures with a Sony Alpha 6000 camera with a SELP 16-50 mm lense or a Sigma 30 mm prime lense
I can close one eye entirely while the other is not affected at all. To some this is quite scary
Have fun and enjoy yourselves.

Liking your outside view on my beloved Vienna. And I like your paintings mixed into. At the moment I do the outside view thing in Liverpool, where I moved to a month ago.
Thx for your kind words. I am exicted to see and learn more about your Liverpool experience. And last but not least, great melancholic-transcedent work on your blog!
I look forward to learning more about your city.
Thx for your kind words. Will do my best 🙂
I made this model (out of real glass, not Lucite!) back in 1985 for a Mies van der Rohe show at MoMA. I then went to Berlin to set it up for a Mies show there.
Was the model in Vienna in 2014?
I’m just curious — any information will be appreciated.

this was really a tough question and I had to search my mind … but voila: I took the photo while visiting an exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Metz (France) in early 2014. It featured Bauhaus designers/artists like Van der Rohe, Moholy-Nagy, but also the likes of André Kertész, Adya van Rees-Dutilh, Hans Richter. You really did a wonderful model!
I hope this helps. Cheers,
