“An honest picture is more important than a beautiful picture,” is the way the Swiss photographer Alberto Venzago summarizes his philosophy. Together with the young photographer, Lisa Kutzelning, he spent three weeks exploring behind the scenes at the Salzburg Festival: make-up and costumes, dye works, laundry, sewing, shoe-making, an office for calculating the purchase of materials, a department where seamstresses and tailors manufacture the costumes that the artists will be wearing on stage. Equipped with their Leica cameras, the two photographers were up close and personal, revealing unusual glimpses of the complex workings that go on behind the scenes of the Salzburg Festival – before the curtain even rises.

The official opening of the photography exhibition at the Großen Festspielhaus is on July 18, 2015, at 11am. During the Salzburg Festival it will open up one hour before each of the performances.

Alberto Venzago

Born in 1950 in Zurich, Venzago first studied therapeutic pedagogy and clarinet before beginning a career in photography at 26. He made himself a name as a ‘concerned photographer’, working for Magnum Photos for four years. After countless war and crisis reportages, he works today for the Credit Suisse and the London Symphony Orchestra, among others.

Born in Salzburg, Kutzelnig has been working as a gallery assistant at the Leica Gallery Salzburg since finishing her studies of Art History. She came to photography as a result of working with Karin Rehn-Kaufmann, owner of the gallery and director of the Leica Galleries worldwide. She developed her own personal imagery following workshops with the likes of Steve McCurry and Robert Mertens.
