Portrait of Helen Hajnoczky

This chapbook was an effort by Julya Hajnoczky to create a portrait of Helen Hajnoczky not by photographing her, but rather by photographing her bookshelf and by pairing this with a poem by Helen. In this way, the portrait is built of things that the subject enjoys and the things she creates, emphasizing how actions and taste, interests and creations can be used to show who someone is in a more revealing way than a photo of them might do.
