Phil moved to Austria from Britain to cover South East Europe for English-speaking media. But a healthy interest in the new sights and sounds of his adopted home unexpectedly nucleated around one thing: Austria's funny, bemusing and sometimes mildly disturbing shop windows. Might they offer some insight insight into what is a closed and deeply private society? If so, what is the message? A collection of "new finds" on Facebook slowly attracted a group of followers who eventually suggested the images be compiled into book form for a wider audience. With a few misgivings Phil has done his best to oblige with "Austrian Windows", while also hoping that the process of sorting through hundreds of pictures might provide him with a degree of closure.
