Ami Vitale taking part in the Danube Revisited – the Inge Morath Truck Project

Ami Vitale is one of nine female photographers who are planning to take a converted truck along the route of the Danube River in the footsteps of Austrian born Magnum photographer Inge Morath (1923 – 2003) who set out in May 1958 to attempt the same journey. At the time she was prevented by the Cold War from reacher her destination.

The nine photojournalists will take Morath’s work back along the route of the river organising night projections, artist talks, photo forums and engaging in cultural exchange with institutions and organisations along the route. At the same time they will be producing new work of their own.

The project is driven by “a core motivation for each of these women … to support the under-represented female voice in documentary photography. As such they have created a project that is for women, by women, and in the legacy of a pioneering woman.”

To view some of Inge Morath’s images of the Danube, click on the image from TIME Lightbox below.


For their Kickstarter campaign to raise money for the journey the nine – Ami Vitale, Olivia Arthur, Emily Schiffer, Lurdes R Basoli, Claire Martin, Claudia Guadarrama, Jessica Dimmock, Mimi Chakarova and Kathryn Cook – have produced a video which you can view below.

You can click HERE to donate to the Kickstarter campaign.
