Unforgettable
6 January 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

An unforgettable evokation of the city, its feel, life, ambience, air. Unforgettable photography of one of the most often-depicted places on earth. Dramatically, there is a sentimental side to the story that is both disconcerting and perfectly APT: why else would despair exist, if it weren't for the dreariness of people? Vienna's mortality, too, is the fountainhead of art. What greater love?
