The strange thing about the photo is that it shows you something else than what you see. In many ways.
This photo was taken without looking through the viewfinder. As I took it in a hurry and hadn’t time to lie down on the ground and take a proper picture.
So I lowered my camera and took a quick shot hoping that the photo would show me what I was experiencing.
Experiencing is the thing. Not directly the view. I was attracted by the new car tracks on the road. A road I pass every day but that is hardly used by cars.
The tracks reminded me of a work of Tapies. The imprint of an action. Like a memory of a story. A story that tells us that people were here. It is like the famous photo of the imprint of a footstep on the moon.
The photo is the start of an idea I’m toying with. An idea about my relation with the earth. The planet. I want to be close to this planet, that-s all I can say at this moment. I want to discover it anew. Looking at it, scrutinizing it, touching it.
