If you think that Vienna is all about Opera and collections of barocco art, we should say, you miss out a big deal. For instance, you may discover loads of interesting things in such relatively modern art as photography.
Here is your destination number one – Westlicht center of photography. Opened in 2001 it never stopped to show and develop the art of photography in Vienna.
It’s located in the house which was a glass factory in 50s. The gallery is a loft, specially designed to exhibit photos.
There is a permanent exhibition showing the history of cameras, and numerous temporary exhibits with photos from 19th century up to present time, covering various themes, subjects and places. Also it’s a site for famous photographers and World Press Photo.
