Yesterday dianajhale published a beautiful post showing spring sketches inspired by nature and by Andrei Tarkovsky. Her post led me to discover the Polaroid’s of Tarkovsky, which I haven’t seen before.
It was a remarkable discovery; Tarkovsky’s wonderful melancholic images struck a chord, still reverberating.
If I were to explain why these pictures hit my heart, I would say something about their way of making the everyday into a poetic experience, the way they are underlining the mysticism of the ordinary, touching upon the beauty of sadness …
But maybe I’d rather not say anything at all –
Never try to convey your idea to the audience – it is a thankless and senseless task. Show them life, and they’ll find within themselves the means to assess and appreciate it.
