The folks at the Lomography HQ in Vienna were recently invited by the Theater an der Gumpendorferstrasse (TAG) to cover a performance of "Der diskrete Charme der smarten Menschen," a stage adaptation of the Luis Buñuel-helmed film, "Der diskrete Charme der Bourgeoisie (The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie). See some of the resulting analogue snapshots in this gallery post!
Given that the Russar+ lens is a super wide type of art lens, one would immediately associate it with sweeping landscapes and dramatic portraits, among other more common types of photographs. But here, we get to see that the Russar+ is just as capable of taking indoor shots – case in point, these photos of a theater production. In this case, the Russar+ turned out to be a good choice because it was able to capture the entirety of the stage without any trouble.
Meanwhile, if you happen to be in Vienna this April and May, you might want to come and see “Der diskrete Charme der smarten Menschen.” Information about the play as well as the dates and times are listed on TAG’s website. Other productions by TAG are also listed here, so make sure to check it out! You may also visit TAG’s Facebook page here.
Here’s a promotional video for “Der diskrete Charme der smarten Menschen” (in German):
