The Flaneur

Sauerkraut And Puber

The Viennese photographer Rita Nowak became known for her “tableaux vivants”, free associated reenactments of famous artworks through portraits of friends and self-portraits. Here we present “Souvenirs vom Flanieren” (Souvenirs from Strolling), a series of photos in which she poetically and humorously captures the city of Vienna on its side stages.

Rita Nowak was born in Wels in 1979 and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts under Eva Schlegel. She has received numerous scholarships and awards – among others, the Austrian State Scholarship for Photography – and is represented in many collections such as The Austrian Photographic Gallery at Museum der Moderne Salzburg, Wien Museum, and the Academy of Fine Arts Picture Gallery. She lives and works alternately in Vienna and London.
