Franz Hubmann, Wien – Vorstadt Europas, 1963

Franz Hubmann, Wien - Vorstadt Europas, Artemis Verlags-AG Zürich, 1963

Cover and slipcase

 

Some weeks ago a friend asked me if there were any good photography books on Vienna, Austria. Here it is.
Austrian photographer Franz Hubmann captured the post-World War II spirit of the city to perfection. He shares his romantic, picturesque view of a city in springtime, and a grainy high-contrast and stark vision of a grey and melancholy Vienna in autumn. The book details the simple pleasures and daily life
of a town which has just survived war. Vienna is my home-town, so for me this is an especially heart-warming and touching photo book.
