Viennametry: the Architectural Geometry of Vienna

Zsolt Hlinka creates photographs characterized by a very graphic approach. In his latest series called Viennametry, Hlinka’s attention is focused on endless flights of stairs with particular shapes and colors and on facades of buildings taken from below.

The Budapest photographer, obsessed with architectural symmetries, tells stories about places and cities through their buildings. In the case of Vienna, the choice to immortalise the stairs follows the theme of upward aspiration. Viennametry represents the architecture of a city that brings with it the lasting impression of the past, but also the promise of a great future. For this reason you have to look beyond the photo, which at first glance looks way too cold and stationary.

Actually every shot hides and shows the history of a building, of a style, of choices made — just like Zsolt’s choice of photographing both historic buildings and modern buildings, where tradition blends with modernity.
