A zombie in fairyland

33 reasons to overflow humans with useless information.


Photography by Gregory Crewdson

As a photographer, Crewdson has made a career out of taking still pictures that use the elaborate production values usually found in the cinema. His photographs depict scenes of anxiety and dislocation: his subjects often appear preoccupied or caught in transition, and are always photographed at twilight, in the gloaming where artists often find inspiration. A naked, pregnant woman stands in the garden; a mid-size sedan stops on the lawn with the door open; suitcases surround a grave in the woods; a man climbs a beanstalk made of coloured lights.

"Her and Lost In Translation are connected to each other. They’re very much on the same wavelength. They explore a lot of the same ideas. This all makes sense since Spike Jonze and Sofia Coppola were married from 1999 to 2003 and had been together for many years before that. Sofia Coppola had already made her big personal statement in regards to love and marriage right when the couple was on the verge of divorce; Her would be Spike Jonze’s answer to those feelings. What makes it even more poignant is that Her never feels resentful or petty. It feels more like a legitimate apology. It’s an acknowledgement that, in the end, some people aren’t meant to be with each other in the long run. Some people do grow apart. Lost in Translation is about a couple on the verge of growing apart, Her is about finally letting go of the person you’ve grown apart with and moving on.”

A boldogság (1936)


Mindössze oda akarok kilyukadni, hogy a boldogság csak ilyen. Mindig rendkívüli szenvedés tövében terem meg, s éppoly rendkívüli, mint az a szenvedés, mely hirtelenül elmúlik. De nem tart sokáig, mert megszokjuk. Csak átmenet, közjáték. Talán nem is egyéb, mint a szenvedés hiánya.

— Kosztolányi
