Christopher Mavric - Zwischen Brücken

Zwischen Brücken


This book is a voyage of discovery to a little known place and the people who live there: Vienna’s Brigittenau District. Slightly off the beaten track, the 20th Municipal District is scarcely familiar even to many Viennese, perhaps because at first sight it appears to have nothing spectacular, nothing exceptional to offer. Founded 120 years ago on land reclaimed from the Danube marshlands, what was once a working-class district and is now an immigrant district never quite managed to shake off its image of a somewhat incidental Viennese suburb. Yet a second glance reveals an astonishing variety of characters among the arterial roads, the sprawling tenements, the abandoned industrial estates, and the secretive riverside paths. Over a period of five years Christopher Mavrič documented his spontaneous encounters with the residents of ‘the 20th’ and their living environment using his analogue medium-format camera. These are all short stories captured in a single image in with the portrayed are able to express themselves, some vociferously, others more quietly.

Christopher Mavrič, *1985 in Bruck/Mur, Austria; lives and works in Vienna and Graz, Austria.
