Land of Black Milk

06.10. – 23.12.2016

Stefanie Moshammer is one of the most exciting new artists who emerged from the Austrian photography scene in the last few years. It comes as no surprise that magazines are queuing to work with her, among them Vice and Sueddeutsche magazine, and that she has just been picked for the prestigious FOAM Talent 2016 edition and shortlisted for Unseen Dummy Award. OstLicht Gallery showcases her personal portraits of two mythical places: Las Vegas, the desert oasis of neon light and blackjack tables, and Rio de Janeiro, the metropolis perhaps best known for the Cristo Redentor and Ipanema.

Lately she was published in two issues of Zeit Magazine, check out her works and stories about Rio de Janeiro and Las Vegas.

Special Selection

Works from the rich OstLicht holdings  from new discoveries to classics of photography, from Viennese avantgarde to Japanese provocateurs. Prices and further information here.

OstLicht presents: Nobuyoshi Araki, Leica Gallery Vienna 

Nobuyoshi Araki (*1940 in Tokyo) undisputedly ranks among the most radical and influential photographers of our time. In his oeuvre he has been exceptionally productive and innovative and is regarded an important figure in current art sphere far beyond the area of photography. The 66 photographs of his series Love by Leica, now presented at Leica Gallery Vienna, form one of his most exciting bodies of work.

The Love by Leica series is joint by a selection of Araki’s large format colour prints from the project Flowers and Jamorinsky (2005–2006), a continuation to his previous works devoted to flower motifs. The photographs relate to fading blossoms, decay, nostalgia and poesy.

Please find the list of works here.
