Vienna today is an extended picture story on a year in the life of the Jewish community in Austria's capital.

After service in the Jewish Brigade in Palestine during the war Harry Weber returned to Vienna and became a staff photographer for Stern in 1952.

This work is a perfect example of the classically conventional approach to the photo documentary. Full frame/black border, black and white, available light, fly on the wall, decisive moment, perfectly balanced, acutely observed, crisp, clean, well printed images. A man after my own heart.

The Photographs were shown at Queens University, Belfast. The work is a touring exhibition curated by the Jewish Museum, Vienna.
