Suite vénitienne, Venice, 1980, by Sophie Calle
© Sophie Calle
Monday, February 11, 1980.
10:00 PM Gare de Lyon, Platform H. Venice boarding area. My father accompanies me to the platform. He waves his hand.
In my suitcase: a make-up kit so I can disguise myself; a blond bobbed wig; hats; veils; gloves; sunglasses; a Leica and a Squintar (a lens attachment with a set of mirrors so I can take photos without aiming at the subject).
I photograph the occupants of the other berths and then go to sleep.
Tomorrow I will see Venice for the first time.
