Saul Steinberg, Autogeography, 1966
I am fascinated by all of the ways that people document their lives and experiences - photos, letters, lists, collections. Each one carries a different kind of weight.
But this piece by Saul Steinberg is especially poignant to me lately - an Autogeography.
With all of the moving around we have done lately, I feel that Place has had the greatest influence over my life. Where I have been has certainly become an integral part of who I now am.
I may have to try my hand at my own autogeography sometime soon.
