One day my mother said, “If you want to go to Paris, go.” This was a great moment in my life. It was 1925. Arriving late at night, I and two other Hungarian boys took a room in a hotel. We were very tired, but next morning I looked out of the window and say my first subject. I knew no one in Paris, but I soon made friends.

I took the photo of Elizabeth and myself in the early 1930s. Of course, we also took a picture of the two of us together, but this is the one I like—just her and my hand. At the time I had a little self-timing device and I used it so I could get into the picture. I had found it in 1914 in Hungary and I still have it.
