Golden Days Before They End | Photo BookThirdmark Library
This is a new favorite of ours at the shop. This is a photo book of gritty, color images reminiscent of the works of Bruce Gilden. Guerrilla style street photos in dying and decaying bars and pubs documenting a generation on it's way out.
'They still exist, these little cafes, inns, Branntweiner [small drinking places that open early in the morning], bars or as the customers refer to these places dens, where time seems to have stopped. Klaus Pichler (photos) and Clemens Marschall (text) went on a mission to find, document and explore the last of these refuges for a dying drinking generation. The book is a swan song for these bars in Vienna that have shaped their customers' existences for decades, places that are soon to disappear forever.'
