Johanna & Helmut Kandl


This photo of a colorfully dressed, impishly smiling woman selling her wares at a farmer's market in Graz came about as the result of extensive research on the topic of Arbeitsbilder (images of work). Her personality and her merchandise (slender twigs in her raised hand) are juxtaposed against a quote from a management magazine: "Some managers don't let hard times slow them down! One could view this as a continuation of the classical allegory in contemporary sociopolitical space. The image (as photo) and the text (as slogan) are adapted to the current standards of medial information and advertising.
