Work Description

In their project "Shops with History – Sundry Goods in Vienna", Martin Frey and Philipp Graf have been photographing old business portals in Vienna since 2009. Each page of their online gallery www.geschaeftemitgeschichte.at contains 32 photographs; 24 of these will then be selected for printing in each volume of the photobook, which will be released in a small numbered and signed edition. A photograph commemorating a shop that no longer exists will be attached to the front cover of the book. The book block will be produced using four-colour offset printing, while the protective cover and text pages will be printed digitally. Each copy will feature hand-sewn binding and be wrapped in cellophane. In volume 3 they present shopfronts from extremely diverse fields and professions: delicatessen, flower shop, novel-exchange centre, shoe shop, umbrella shop, bonbons and confectioneries, watches and jewellery, electrician, leather goods, tea and liqueur room, alterations shop, glass workshop and retail, glazier’s shop, pet shop, ice-cream parlour, bicycle shop, theatre ticket agency, book printer, bakery, glove shop, stationery shop, household goods and kitchen appliances. The following businesses have since closed: Böhle delicatessen (Wollzeile), Hammerl & Bein watches and jewellery (Sechsschimmelgasse), electrician (Untere Augartenstraße), Johannis Halper tea and liqueur room (Favoritenstraße), Franz Pinder book printer (Opernring), Berto ice-cream parlour (Lange Gasse), Anton Frank bakery (Speisinger Straße), stationery shop (Praterstraße), Rudolf Waniek household goods and kitchen supplies (Hoher Markt) have since closed …
