“My wife calls me a vampire because of my nocturnal lifestyle. During the coronavirus lockdown, I took a nightly walk for exercise through the empty streets of Vienna. I began seeing interesting images that can only be felt in a nighttime setting.
So I started bringing my camera along, capturing scenes of an empty and deserted city in black and white. My objective was to give the viewer the feel of Vienna at night during the Time of Corona, and also produce images that stood on their own as photographically strong.
Through this project I have rediscovered Vienna, and I hope the viewer will as well.”
There are many more photographs in this series.
Framed prints are available.

Haben Sie das schon erlebt?” Another photographer takes us on a tour of nightly Vienna in these strange times, so we can experience what Fendrich sings about, with eerie but strangely beautiful pictures of our city in deep slumber.
