In cinematographer Alex Soloviev‘s new short film “Lazy Vienna,” he explores the beautiful Austrian capital through the eyes of a photographer. He creates visual poetry by having a narrated voiceover of a poem by 20th century English poet A. S. J Tessimond, using the words symmetry and the aesthetics to highlight the beauty of one of the world’s greatest cities.
Feeling as though you are actually behind the camera, Soloviev interrupts the filtered scenes with frozen snapshots of black and white. Although we mimic the tourists in the photo and are shown some of the city’s famous landmarks, we are also intermittently asked to see the beauty in its details and are called to pay attention to some of life’s simpler moments.
