Description of To Remember
Marketa Luskacová spent years documenting the street musicians that inhabited London’s markets throughout the 1970s. “The street musicians themselves were often quite lonely men, yet their music lessened the loneliness of the street, the people in it and my own loneliness.” – Marketa Luskacová It is this intimate series that is presented in To Remember, Luskacová’s self published 2016 photobook.
‘The first street musician I ever met was at the horse fair in the West of Ireland on a cold autumn day in 1973 – an old man playing a violin between the horses. It was like an epiphany. A few years later I started to live in London close to Portobello Rd Market. Street musicians played there frequently and the feeling of being in the presence of something precious stayed with me. The street musicians themselves were often lonely men, yet their music lessened the loneliness of the street, the people in it and my own loneliness.’
