Alone Together

Jia Zhang-Ke/China

The wife walks across the bridge over the lake to see her husband. The husband makes a living by offering massage at the pavilion by the lake. The son comes home after school, and he stares out of the window by himself. The scenery of the lake is in a haze of smog. The chimneys and the pipes of the distant factory are faintly visible. Everyone in the family that lives nearby the factory has something in mind: the father blows the sand away from the son’s eye; the son shakes the mother’s arm; the wife applies burning liquor on the husband’s injured back.

Catherine Cadou/France

Eustache. This summer has been quite rainy and the rain links me to March 11th in Japan. But here we are in Paris and the bells of the church ring every hour and half hour from 7:30 am to 8pm. We live with the sounds of the life and the street musicians outside. It is very lively, we are right in the center of Paris, and our life is a mosaic like our bed cover. The walls are covered with a mosaic of books and paintings by artist-friends. Life is a mosaic and we try to find the harmony among the colors of the days

A young boy who is here at the house now.
Myself who was at the house when I was small.
The house which my son is looking at now.
The house in the faded memory of my childhood.

Naomi Kawase/Japan

A young girl living in that moment. Her life is being helped along. The sound of the wind, the light. All of that is a memory, or perhaps a chronicle. And the mother succumbing to her old age, is she nearing the end of her days… A child is born, the years accumulate, and time just marches on without remorse. An enduring space called “home” and people encountering “light.” What bliss.
