An emotional journey of discovery through a living district.
It is their second great proof of their love for our city. After a colourful walk through Währing, which they recorded in autumn 2014 in their book "elfachtzig", the advertiser Michael Haitszinger and the photographer Klaus Prokop now move to Ottakring. And needless to say, the new work - again starting from the postal code - is called "elfsechzig".
The new illustrated book presents itself in a very appealingly designed layout, which takes a closer look at the charming edges of the Borough, and offers deep insights into the soul of the sixteenth district of Vienna. The book once again finds liveliness in the people who introduce themselves here and tell us their stories, dreams and wishes. The book contains, amongst others, the mayor of the district, Franz Prokop, Vienna's mayor Michael Häupl, SOHO in Ottakring founder Ula Schneider, the two butchers Herbert and Helmut Klaghofer, the physiotherapist Erika Kronbichler and Vienna's oldest bicycle repair master Wolfgang Brunner. "Each of our conversations was unique - from cheerful to profound, touching to exciting, from being full of meaning to being amusing - everything was there," claimed the authors, for whom there is hardly a second Viennese district "with such a colourful cultural mix".
Join the two city walkers on their emotional journey of discovery through Ottakring, a borough that shows us its multi-faceted face and rolls out a red carpet inside its multicultural soul.
About the authors:
Michael Haitszinger lives and works in Vienna. He is an advertising consultant, graphic designer and copywriter. For "elfsechzig" he had countless conversations with residents of and visitors to the district. "Ottakring took us by storm," he says. The result of the 18-month collaboration with the photographer, Klaus Prokop, is now available as a 180-page illustrated book.
Klaus Prokop is a photographer. And with every fibre of his body. He sees a photo long before it is in the viewfinder. "We show pictures with character, style and soul," he is convinced. The result is over 5,000 photos for "elfsechzig" - either as random snapshots on one of his many walks or meticulously planned and perfectly crafted.
