WITHIN THEIR MINDS 
A visual dialogue
We’re as fragile as paper.
The presence of a human being on earth is so occasional, brief, unpredictable; everything living IS and lives only by chance. And everything is so invaluable.
The lines in this photograph are from Birthday, in The Joy of Writing, by Nobel winning poet Wislawa Szymborska; this book is always with me, and I’m trying to make my sons discover it, and dream with it.
Here’s an English version of the poem: “So much world, all at once...
Isn’t sunset a little too much for two eyes
that, who knows, may not open to see the sun rise?
I am just passing through, it’s a five-minute stop.
I won’t catch what is distant: what’s too close, I’ll mix up.
While trying to plumb what the void's inner sense is,
I'm bound to pass by all these poppies and pansies.
What a loss when you think how much effort was spent
perfecting this petal, this pistil, this scent
for the one-time appearance, which is all they're allowed,
so aloofly precise and so fragilely proud.”
(translated from Polish by Stanislaw Baranczak and Clare Cavanagh)
Being a parent requires empathy, relating, and a constant attempt at reaching out.
I asked my two sons (16 and 13 years old) to let me imagine what they imagine. And I photographed them while they were imagining.
We then looked at innumerable pictures in the web, and they chose the ones fitting with their visions.
I have tried to visualize anything invisible in their minds: the thoughts they think, the dreams they have not dreamed yet, the silent wishes, the unknown or unconfessed feelings. The overwhelming size of life.
I have matched the pictures I have taken of my sons with a number of pictures they were struck by, as representing their feelings. In some cases, I have merged them: the resulting collages are a sort of inner portraits, parts of their private worlds told visually instead of being uttered in words.
