The book features an innovative and captivating visual representation of the classic play 'Faust' by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Faust is a photography book that brings the characters and scenes of the play to life through striking imagery captured by photographer Marcel Urlaub as part of the performances live on stage of Vienna’s renowned Volkstheater — including production shots by Franzi Kreis. The book presents thus a fresh interpretation of Faust, showcasing the talents of the Volkstheater’s ensemble and the original nature of director Kay Voges’ approach to the play. Each photograph becomes a visual poem, a frozen moment that encapsulates the universal themes and timeless questions Goethe explored.
