Self portrait with cows going home


Aperture

“Hungarian born photographer Sylvia Plachy goes home for the last time in a bitter sweet final parting with her home land. Self Portrait with Cows Going Home, Plachy’s latest book, is a powerful personal memoir told through images and anecdotes about her beginnings in communist Hungary, to her migration to Austria, then New York with her parents and her repeated journeys back to Hungary…Her pictures of her son Adrian Brody on the set of The Pianist, in 2001, are used towards the beginning of the book to paint the picture of Hungary after the revolution.”
