The ALBERTINA Museum is devoting a comprehensive solo presentation to the works of photographer Manfred Willmann (*1952). In his series, Willmann captures scenes from his personal surroundings in Graz and southern Styria, scenes that break with clichés of idyllic rural life. His pictures reveal a very direct and subjective view characterized by his consistent use of the flash and focus on details. Willmann is also one of the first Austrian photographers who used color as a means of artistic expression. The ALBERTINA Museum is showing six large series from Manfred Willmann’s oeuvre, including the influential work groups Schwarz und Gold and Das Land.

The exhibition is on view from 8 February 2019 until 26 May 2019.
