About This Image
Photosynthesis of a cafe in the middle of no where in Egypt. Signed, titled and dated in ink on recto of print in lower margin. I talked to the artist recently, who told me that he considered it one of his most important photosyntheses because of the fact that he initially thought that nothing was happening here. But when he noticed the light at the far right and the empty chairs, the image took on greater significance. See: Januszewska, et. al., Photologie: Egypt-Lumiere et Fotosinteza de Pruszkowski (published by the Musee National de Varsovie (Warsaw)), p.115.
