Westlicht, a gallery situated in Neubau district, offers “In Our Time”, an exhibition featuring some of the most important works of the back catalogue of Magnum, one of the world’s most prestigious photo agencies.

The agency was founded in 1947. Famous photographers like Erich Lessing, Inge Morath, Elliott Erwitt and Rene Burri have worked for Magnum over the years. Their images have been published by the world’s most prestigious magazines and newspapers.

An exhibition called “Fotos. Österreichische Fotografien von den 1930ern bis heute” opened at the city’s 21er Haus museum yesterday. It features images taken in Austria between the 1930s and today. Most of the snapshots show situations of daily life. However, rather artistic photographs are on display as well.
