Photo series: Heartbeat Streets

There is no doubt that each of Vienna’s neighborhoods has its own identity and unique atmosphere. They seem to exhibit almost human characteristics and elicit specific emotions. This is exactly what our photo series “Heartbeat Streets” demonstrates. The visual language used by our selected photographers Mafia Mashi, Erli Grünzweil, Evelyn Dragan, Mafalda Rakoš and Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek, are as wide-ranging as Vienna’s various districts. Each of them interprets every Grätzel, or neighborhood, differently. The result is a series of unique snapshots that describe Vienna better than words ever could.
