It pains me to say that I like fancy cupcakes and artisan bakeries. Actually, after thinking about it for a few minutes, I realize that the bakeries and their products don’t arouse my anger. It’s the lines of self-satisfied people patting themselves on the back for being so enlightened about their pastries, even though I’m […]

The Communist Mammoths of Bratislava

Text by Eric Smillie Photograph by Gregor Hohenberg I arrived in Bratislava, Slovakia, on a cold, wet day in October.
