Pongracz took this photograph for her exhibition at Vienna Secession and the accompanying publication. The project is dedicated to two members of the artists' association - Franz Ringel and Martha Jungwirth. An extensive »photo story« shows their life and work as artists by circuiting their social and urban environment.
