Images Gone With Time

Images Gone With Time, by Igor Grossman is a photographic reflection of Slovak folk life from 1950 to 1965. Hardbound, published in 2001, 152 pages in black and white. This unique book portrays the everyday life of the Slovak village in the middle of the last century. The photographs bring to life ways of living and folk customs that have forever vanished into the past. Igor Grossman starkly beautiful photographs capture the essence of the Slovak village at the moment of encounter between the old and the new, when centuries of tradition beheld the dawn of a new age. The world of the mountain village comes alive in these photographs – the countryside formed by traditional ways of farming, buildings blended in the scenery, and family life in the village in its ordinariness and its bright festive moments. These images are revealing, and this vanishing world – between reality and enigma – is part of the human record, even if the images are gone with time, Grossman’s photographs are the land of our memories of home. They are the record of our existence, a guarantee of our survival. ISBN 0-86516-436-3 USA
