Enrico Essl says about himself:
“I Was born in Linz, Upper Austria, in 1970. I grew up in Salzburg, in my teenage years I came back to Linz where I’d been living until last July. I was working at a theatre there as a lighting engineer.
At the moment I’m spending one year in Berlin, Germany. My project while living in this overwhelming city is to carry out a book project.
Actually, I’ve been into photography since my childhood and I’ve always been interested in different genres. About five years ago I came over street photography during a stay in Berlin.
I detected street photography for myself and it’s been haunting me until this day.
The urban jungle of cities, the people living there, the crucial moments and the endless trips through the streets and places are constantly stirring my desire to capture moments.”
About ‘Vienna B-sides’:
To photograph in Vienna is always a special thing. The contrasts between old-fashioned shops, new modern shopping malls, the hecticness of the tourists to visit all the cultural offerings of this beautiful city, give the photographer enough room for extensive photo walks.
This series has grown over a period of four years, and as the title “B-Sides” suggests,
these works are not primarily used as single images and so far have not been used for any official series.
Vienna is my favorite city to live my passion “street photography”.
Make a trip to Vienna and you will always return to this city.
