(S)he’s not there…


How can we accept that we are changing?
How can we accept we hardly recognize ourselves in certain situations?…

Barcelona-based PoL Úbeda Hervàs has answered his own questions with a series of photographs in which, as he observes, “my shadow is there but I erase myself because I don’t know who I am any longer…”

See them all at his Flickr stream “I’m Not There.”

As we put away the sunscreen, we might send vividly-imagined birthday greetings to Federico Fellini; he was born on this date in 1920.  A screenwriter, director, and producer who began in the Italian Neo-Realist movement, Fellini moved beyond realism to make such fantastic, dream-like films as La Dolce Vita,  8½,  Juliet of the SpiritsSatyriconCasanova, Amacord, and City of Women.  Widely-honored (among his many prizes, a Lifetime Achievement award from Cannes and five Oscars, one for Lifetime Achievement), he was also widely-influential:  he’s been cited as an inspiration by film makers including (in no particular order)  Ingmar Bergman, Stanley Kubrick, John Waters, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, David Lynch, Terry Gilliam, Pedro Almodóvar, Dariush Mehrjui, Darren Aronofsky, Asghar Farhadi, Nanni Moretti, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Emir Kusturica, Glauber Rocha,Jean-Luc Godard, Tim Burton, Francis Ford Coppola, Girish Kasaravalli, David Cronenberg, and François Truffaut.

You exist only in what you do
