ABOUT THE COVER

It was 1983, Sandy and I  just arrived in Budapest, Hungary while I was on assignment for Smithkline Corporation. We checked our bags at the very charming  Astoria Hotel located in the city center. After a brief check in we took a leisurely stroll to see an exhibit at the Hungarian National Museum.  As we ascended an old massive set of marble laden stairs leading to galleries on the second floor,  I asked the former model to strike a pose, realizing the amazing silhouette that enveloped her.  During the early 1980’s,  I was interested in Surrealism, and so I selected a contemporary skyscraper image from my archives, and juxtaposed the images together to create a surrealistic effect of old and new geometrical shapes.  This picture is part of an early series called 80’s Composites.
