Andre Tarkovsky's Polaroid  


San Gregorio, Italy, 1983

Tarkovsky believes that true artists should serve immortality forever and try their best to make the world and the world live forever. In the eyes of Tonino Gela, a screenwriter and friend, he adheres to this old belief: "it is because art is fleeting that we have to stop time, even if it is a picture taken with a Polaroid camera." Between 1979 and 1984, Tashi recorded a large number of moments living with his wife and children in Russia and later living alone in Italy. These poetic photos, combined with obsessive dreams, become the movie "homesickness" (Nostalghia).

"the image is a grain, an organism of self-evolution and feedback. Life includes death. By contrast, the image of life excludes death, otherwise it is to see in death a kind of affirmation of the unique potential of life. By definition, artistic creation is a negation of death, so it is optimistic. In the end, though, the artist is a tragic character. " -- Tarkovsky
