Working Men Portrait Series
Imre Varhidy - Kensington Simca Service, Kensington Maryland
This man's story began in Hungary before the advent of World War II. Imre Varhidy came from a family where running your own business was part of life. With the Hungarian uprising in 1956 followed quickly by the Soviet invasion later that year, Imre's life was turned upside down. All businesses, homes and property that his family owned were seized by the regime and they were left to live in a house that faced a large factory that they once owned and managed.
In the image of Imre, you see hands that have worked many hard physical jobs. But you will also see a gentleness through his eyes. On a quiet October evening in 2015, I photographed him in the garage that he established in 1969. The session was a peaceful one with very little spoken between us. He was content to follow my direction and seemed to enjoy the novelty and fuss of a photo session. I am grateful for his time and patience and for sharing his life story with me.
