I’ve been living in Vienna’s Brigittenau district since early 2015. That came about because there are still affordable flats available for rent here. I later found out that my great-grandfather, whom I never knew, had actually lived on Leipziger Strasse for a few years, until his death in 1963.
I’d like to thank all the people who, until recently, had been unknown to me, people who placed their trust in me, a photographer and a stranger.
