About Aware

Mirror, Andrei Tarkovsky

An instantaneous mirror of memory, every photograph leaves a motionless trace of what has been, a fixed imprint of something that is no longer what it was before, a silent simulucrum of someone who was disappeared forever from our field of vision. And as a simple act of remembering, the photograph seems to testify only the disappearance and death of people and of the feelings that blind us to them, of things and of the places where they belong.

A. Tarkovsky

Mirror, 1975.
