Torre de Rectoría
Last year at this time I was visiting Mexico City. My friend Boris de Swan asked me on the final day of my stay where I would like to go. The UNAM (National University), I answered. I wished to see the spectacular wall murals created by David Alfaro Siqueiros at this famous university.
One month ago Boris died unexpectedly of a heart attack at his home. With this photo I pay tribute to him. His wit and talent as a photographer inspired me and I shall always remember him fondly.

This photo was taken with a Kiev 60 medium format film camera with a Carl Zeiss Jena DDR Flektogon 4/50 lens using Kodak Portra 160 film, the negative scanned by an Epson Perfection V600 and digitally rendered with Photoshop.

Thanks for your tribute. It made me wonder, why Boris did not post any images the last time.
