Reinhard Mandl’s seven-year photo project VIENNA.Views illustrates changes over the course of time in the city and is based on a very stringent, prosaically structured network of routes. The photographer started his expedition at the first street under letter A in the Vienna street index, and went from there to the first street under letter B, and so on until he had gone through the whole alphabet. This structure prevented him from seeking out previously envisaged, existing images of Vienna, and led him to parts of the city he had never set foot in before. On his walks he captured what is rarely noticed: seemingly insignificant things and situations full of poetry and humour, small details from big events, but also concentrated atmospheres and scenes that represent our world of today.
