Item description for Self Portrait With Cows Going Home (Aperture Monograph) 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Self Portrait With Cows Going Home (Aperture Monograph)?

A moving and emotional collection  Mar 13, 2005
Sylvia Plachy: Self-Portrait with Cows Going Home is a moving and personal photographic memoir by expert photographer Sylvia Plachy. Forced to depart her native Hungary at age thirteen with her parents, she arrived in America in 1958 and became a U.S. citizen in 1963; Self-Portrait with Cows Going Home reflects upon the Eastern Europe of her childhood, her changing homeland, and the trials and travails of growing up in America. The black-and-white images throughout offer a unique look into the stages of her life and the world around her, and her commentary is a candid window of insight into her difficulties and joys. A moving and emotional collection.
