I became familiar with Irma Haselberger’s photography via a closed group on Facebook. I was immediately struck by the visual impact of her photos and how they resonate with my personal aesthetic and emotions.

Irma Haselberger has been working as an artist and architect in Vienna for 25 years. Mostly her focus is urban street photography with ordinary people and how they interact with those around them.

For me Irma’s use of featureless blacks, light areas within the frame and the textures she introduces to the image add a magical depth to her photos. Irma uses Photoshop and Corel Painter to produce these effects by hand. She does not use Photoshop filters.
