Inge Morath's fascination for the Danube lay in its geography: As the second longest river in Europe, it flows through ten countries, its waters uniting very different cultures whilst separating others. "I love voyages. Voyages where the going from one place to the other informs, allows one to go deeper. One day, in May of the year 1958, it became clear to me that to follow the Danube from its source to its end was one of those inevitable voyages.”
Several years have passed since Inge Morath documented life in the river region before and after the fall of the Iron Curtain. A great deal has changed in the meantime. This summer nine photographers started a journey into the past, immersed themselves in the memories of Inge Morath and continued her photographic legacy along the Danube.
