Synopsis: Plachy is a staff photographer for the Village voice where her regular photographic column titled "Unguided tour" has delighted readers with poignant and startling images since 1982. This collection of 130 duotone photographs ranges from the photographer's native Hungary to her present home in Queens, stopping off in Nicaragua, a Marine boot camp on Parris island, and Manhattan, where she has photographed visiting celebrities, and anonymous street scenes. Accompanied by a flexible record of music by Tom Waits. 10<1/2>x11<1/4>". Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From Library Journal: Plachy's photographs, regularly published in The Village Voice , are at once journalistic and personal. While presented here as an "unguided tour" of everything from portraits (parents, pets, musicians, and writers) to street photographs (markets, factories, accident sites, and demonstrations), the pictures have in common beautifully arrested motion and expressive emotion. Richly printed in duotone, 130 black-and-white photographs--accompanied by the artist's statements and vignettes of dreams--weave in time and place from Plachy's birthplace in Hungary to France, Sicily, Howard Beach, and Nicaragua. The collection is also notable for its humorous and striking juxtapositions. Tom Waits's musical accompaniment (on a flexible record included with the book) is superfluous but perhaps emblematic: traditionally Hungarian in flavor, transformed into a unique creation. Unguided Tour is a traveling exhibition which opened this fall at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
