Photographer's Note

Back from Budapest. I dearly missed you--my exposure to computers was minimal.

I thought of starting with this shot I took in an underpass where large photographs of old Budapest were exhibited under plexyglass in dim light. The man going down the stairs evoked my own descent into my past. (Oddly, just a week before in Budapest's 3 old baths there were large celebrations of Sigmund Freud on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his birth, including actors as "soul-divers", dressed symbolically in period bathing suits, who read out seminal texts by one of the fathers of psychoanalysis.) The city as it was seen on the old photograph also reminded me of my father's extensive private collection of antique postcards of Budapest, as well as my childhood, surrounded by the old cards.
