Sylvia Plachy: Self Portrait With Cows Going Home
Text by Sylvia Plachy.
In this, Plachy's most complex and personal book to date, we are asked to reconsider ideas of self-portraiture and going home again. In 1956, in the wake of the Hungarian Revolution, Plachy and her parents escaped into Austria carrying only a small valise. She returned to Hungary eight years later, this time with a camera in hand. Through the gently subversive images gathered here, her life is revealed via clues, fragments of words and pictures as if by someone looking into a mirror and seeing her life pass before her eyes--not linearly like a film, but rather in layers.
