for when i forget how to speak

supposing i dreamed this)
only imagine, when day has thrilled
you are a house around which
i am a wind-

your walls will not reckon how
strangely my life is curved
since the best he can do
is to peer through windows,unobserved

-listen, for(out of all
things)dream is noone's fool;
if this wind who i am prowls
carefully around this house of you

love being such, or such,
the normal corners of your heart
will never guess how much
my wonderful jealousy is dark

if light should flower:
or laughing sparkle from
the shut house(around and around
which a poor wind will roam
 -e.e. cummings

"Bright, Bright Day": Photographs and essay by Andrey Tarkovsky
White Space Gallery, London, 2007. 128 pp., 65 colour illustrations and 13 duotones.

"The written content of this book brings together reflections on photography by three generations of the Tarkovsky family: In the Introduction, the younger Andrey Tarkovsky comments on the photographs of his childhood that were taken by his father; a text by the latter considers the experience of going to his mother's house and looking at photos of his own childhood taken by family friend Lev Gornung; and a selection of Arseniy Tarkovsky's poems, including one about photography, punctuate the book. Accompanying these intimate reflections is an interview with leading Russian philosopher and cultural critic Boris Groys, Professor at the Center for Art and Media Technology Karlsruhe, by Nadim Samman and Anya Stonelake. Also included is a short essay by prominent photographer Stephen Gill.
Where does art end and life begin? As this book will make clear, for Andrey Tarkovsky there could be no division." (Photo Eye)
