Wanderweg project based on the works of Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard.

New York City-based portrait, editorial, documentary and travel photographer Brian Harkin has posted new work in his PhotoServe portfolio. The new work is part a personal project called Wanderweg. It documents places in Germany and Austria from the works and life of Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard (1931-1989). Bernhard was a novelist, playwright and poet. He is considered to be one of the most important German-speaking authors since World War II. Wanderweg is a trail or footpath. Biographical details in this essay are either from Bernhard’s memoirs or The Making Of An Austrian, a biography by Gitta Honegge. The full project can be seen here
