Theresa Wey photographs people and encounters. Her main discipline is portraiture. For her, it is the result of pausing together, says the Frankfurt-born photographer, who most recently worked on behalf of Die Zeit, the Diagonale or the Kultursommer Wien, for example. Until Theresa Wey found her home in photography, she worked in various theaters. Theater was followed by commercial photography, and her artistic practice expanded with the Friedl Kubelka School.

Her new portrait studio in Bandgasse is now also intended to be her home, namely for attentive encounters. A first opportunity for such a meeting will be offered during a workshop at OFF GRID Festival. Participants walk from the Portrait Studio Vienna to ZIMMER in Piaristengasse, where Theresa Wey is also showing a solo exhibition at the time of the photo festival. An encounter. With people and photos – and photographing people.
