EXHIBITION REVIEW: For the third year in a row, the small town of Baden near Vienna has become an outdoor photography gallery. Billed as the largest European photography festival, the exhibitions are spread all across downtown Baden´s streets and parks. In times of the Covid-19 pandemic, there could not be a more ideal setting for a “museum visit” than to stroll around in the open air, enjoying the outstanding photography and the greenery, stopping in between for coffee and cake in one of Baden´s many coffee houses. I visited on a warm September afternoon, when people were still lounging about on picnic blankets and in outdoor cafes. The exhibition runs until 26 October 2020.
