CROCODILE TEARS/Jérôme Sother

Image précédenteImage suivante

The photographs are about Jerome Sother.
He is telling us “ the naked truth “ - being alone
mysterious and banal happenings
loosing hair - meeting a woman - falling leaves
and rage against night-transports across Europe from East to West
Looking into the lens are middle aged Mother and Father,
a tribute gentle and clear.
Sother returns to revolt against possible married life
Question:
will the woman crash him while he’s lying under the couch ?
The Baby arrives & we are happy. Four self-portraits looking
at a fragile House of Cards on the top of a table
one slight movement - and all will collapse.
Is this a good world for him and us ?
