U.C. Irvine 1985

In 1985, I was in U.C Irvine. I took these photographs with my first Rolleiflex, getting more seriously involved with photography.

The term was originally coined in 1688 by Johannes Hofer (1669-1752), a Swiss medical student. The word is made up of two Greek roots (νόστος = nostos = returning home, and άλγος = algos = pain/longing), to refer to "the pain a sick person feels because he wishes to return to his native land, and fears never to see it again". In today's common parlance it is a feeling, a yearning for a lost time and place, usually located in the near past.
