            Danube Revisited – The Inge Morath Truck Project, is a photographic road trip and travelling exhibition in which nine female photographers will convert a 7.5T truck into a mobile gallery and drive it through ten countries along the Danube River in Eastern Europe. The exhibition will feature the work of renowned Magnum photographer Inge Morath, who photographed life along the Danube before and after the fall of the Soviet Union, and was deeply connected to the river and region. WHO WE ARE: The participating photographers are all recipients of the Inge Morath Award, a grant given annually by the members of Magnum Photos. These nine young women will retrace Morath’s journey along the Danube, producing new work, and promoting dialouge about documentary photography through night projections, artist talks, photography forums, and cultural exchange with institutions. With the river as a collective subject, these young photographers hope to connect with the region that meant so much to Inge Morath. Our core motivation is to support the under-represented female voice in documentary photography, and to promote the kind of long-term, sustained international projects to which they have devoted their careers. We have created a project that is for women, by women, and in the legacy of a pioneering woman. In line with this vision, Danube Revisited is offering female photographers in the Danube region special mentoring, exhibition and publishing opportunities as a part of the project. The project will culminate in a book and traveling exhibition, produced by Fotohof Gallery, Austria, which pairs Morath’s Danube work with new images created on the Danube River tour by the award winners and local women . The Inge Morath Truck Project is a collaboration between the nine award-winning photographers and: Fotohof Gallery, Salzburg, which facilitated Inge Morath’s journey along the Danube, The Inge Morath Foundation, New York. It also has established support from the Magnum Foundation, The Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM) and Spedition Ebeling Truck Company.

We travel with Jessica as she experiences the high speed car chases, trespassing, tipping informants and the secret alliances that are all regular parts of the high stakes business.

Several years later a fully addicted Joe no longer had a bedroom, as many as 12-15 young addicts stayed at any given time, all electricity and hot water had been turned off and anything valuable had long been sold to feed habits.
