A truly citywide celebration featuring exhibitions, programs, and events highlighting world-class photography, and providing exposure for photographers working locally and worldwide.
FotoDC mission: To provide a dynamic, evocative, engaging experience for photographers, cultural institutions, galleries, curators, schools, and photo enthusiasts through exhibitions and dynamic programming.
Uncommon Places is a collective exhibition that introduces the work of six Austrian photographers (one as collective). Subjects of this exhibition are places that have been discovered in Austria and abroad – real existing unusual places. However, some of them are dealing with a particular state of mind – influenced by ones surrounding, relationships or simply evoke through the existence of its history.
In his series ‚Changing Views‘, Stefan Oláh shows an excerpt of his book project “Österreichische Architektur der 50er Jahre fotografiert von Stefan Oláh” (Austrian Architecture of the 50s). The series includes unique views of different types of representative buildings which all symbolize the so called “Wirtschafts- wunder” in the uprising economy of the young Austrian nation after the second world war.
