Franz Hubmann, the doyen of Austrian photo journalism documented people, landscapes and culture for decades. One of the constants in his oeuvre is his close interest in Waldviertel. With a keen eye and a great love of the region his photographs allow us insights into the archaic woodlands on the Austrian borders which have always enthralled him and which he has said are a “formative landscape of the soul”. Franz Hubmann has captured the unique beauty and the peaceful attraction of Waldviertel in atmospheric images. They communicate impressions of its raw character, influenced by the forest, stones and water, the loneliness of the woods, the flowering poppy fields and the decaying architecture.
An accompanying photo book was published. “Franz Hubmann. Waldviertel” is available in a numbered, signed, limited special edition of 500 for 49.- Euros. It is also available in the standard edition for 39.- Euros.
