Deep Space LIVE: Dangerous Skies over Linz
Thursday, December 5, 2013 / 8 PM
(Linz, December 2, 2013) At the next Deep Space LIVE this coming Thursday at 8 PM, Linz photographer Manfred Carrington will take up a tragic chapter of this city’s history—the air raids that targeted Linz during World War II. Carrington will present detailed aerial photographs taken by the U.S. Air Force that show the severe damage inflicted upon factories, buildings and rail lines. Additional photos taken by Linz residents convey what it felt like to live in a city threatened by aerial bombardment.
For more than a decade now, graphic artist and photographer Manfred Carrington has been passionately pursuing his interest in Linz’s past. His aim in founding and managing Lentia Verlag is to make history come alive in high-quality printed works designed for general audiences. Together with Andreas Reiter, Carrington has already brought out more than 20 publications.
