Helmut and Johanna Kandl take photographs on their travels, but also at their homes in Vienna and Berlin. In twenty-five years, an archive with hundreds of thousands of photos has been created.
The photographs, often quick notes, snapshots of events experienced and seen, are mostly source material for Johanna's painting, Helmut uses them in videos and postcards and also in graphics. With the book business or pleasure (2005), also published by Fotohof edition, Helmut and Johanna Kandl for the first time gave an insight into their extensive archive. Not infrequently, the two artists themselves are the protagonists; however, one always senses the sympathy and empathy for those portrayed. Some of their experienced situations appear bizarre, peculiar and curious, other images, isolated or placed in a different context, often surreal.

In the time of the pandemic, the desire arose to create a book that would cheer up, somewhat displace the worries and fears, put them into perspective. Sometimes humour and wit help to counteract the negative spiral of one's thoughts. J.& H. Kandl
