HUNGARIAN JOURNEY

"wednesday" collage on prestamped postcard, 5.5 by 3.5 inches.

"monday" collage on prestamped postcard, 5.5 by 3.5 inches.

A while back I was given old family documents belonging to a Hungarian woman, named Magda/Magdolna/Magdelena, by her daughter. She said she had no one to leave them to, and that I could use them in my work. I kept them safely in my files, but could not bear to cut up the originals. Today I decided to make copies and print them to use in this collage series. I wish I could translate all the documents, but even with an online translator I did not get very far. I did find that one of the documents was a school honor, and one was a smallpox vaccine certificate.

See all the days of the week on flickr.

Shop all seven collages on Etsy.
