A comprehensive solo presentation of 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.
