the city along with its diverse occupants managed the not insignificant
accomplishment of becoming essential to the New York photography scene.
One of her enduring subjects has been her son, Oscar winner, Adrien

to photograph. I couldn't take my eyes off him. His emotions were
mirrored in his face," said Plachy.

Plachy has exhibited her work variously at the Whitney Museum, the
Queens Museum and the Minneapolis Institute of Fine Arts.
She also has had shows in Budapest, Ljubljana, Manchester, Berlin,

outlets. For over eight years The Village Voice published a weekly
uncaptioned, black and white photograph, of Plachy's work under the
heading: "Sylvia Plachy's Unguided Tour."
Her new book, Self-Portrait with Cows Going Home (Aperture September,
2004) is an intensely personal photographic journey of Plachy's childhood
in Eastern Europe and a celebration of her many years of superb image

Women In Photography International (WIPI) is gathering names and histories
of 2000 women from around the world for a biographical project that
will mark the new millennium as well as the heritage of women of photography.
This project will uncover, honor and celebrate artists and professional
women who have worked diligently at their craft, yet may have gone (for
the most part) unheralded or undocumented, says Jean Ferro, President
of Women In Photography International. Jean goes on to say, The nominations
will come form all disciplines and professions that women worked in
to contribute to the advancement of the photographic arts and sciences.
WIPI curator, author and photo historian Peter E. Palmquist will select
the first 100 women from the Women in Photography International Archive.
This will seed the project that will eventually evolve into a book,
an exhibition, as well as a lasting record of women in the field of
photography. All biographical information submitted will be incorporated
in to the nearly 27,000 files that are currently on hand in the Women
in Photography International Archive.
