Irina Peicu makes time for the things other people overlook. Those moments when the tip of a head, the adjustment of a lens, reveals a fresh perspective.
Fuelled by a love of fashion, food, and photography, Irina Peicu turns her gaze to one of Vienna's most popular shopping malls.
Transforming elevators into futuristic shuttles, or framing rows of subdued, rainbow-coloured clothes, there’s a sense of melancholy to Irina’s photos of the city’s shopping district.
But there is also an adventure playing out between the vacant gaze of a vintage store dummy and the portrait of a pensive young woman, perched precariously in the mannequin’s lap.
A unique appreciation for the ways that Vienna, a city steeped in the past, can still surprise us.
