cutting on the action

photography and film – facts, ideas, values

Fernando António Nogueira Pessoa { 13 June 1888 – 30 November 1935 }

A brief, magical, evanescent, mayfly friendship brought this poet to this pinhead in the pin-cushion of the universe.

Fernando Pessoa

‘See life from a distance. Never question it. There’s nothing it can tell you.’

Desde que sinta a brisa fresca no meu cabelo
E ver o sol brilhar forte nas folhas
Não irei pedir por mais.
Que melhor coisa podia o destino dar-me?
Que a passagem sensual da vida em momentos
De ignorância como este?

As long as I feel the full breeze in my hair
And see the sun shining strong on the leaves,
I will not ask for more.
What better thing could destiny give me
Than the sensual passing of life in moments
Of ignorance like this?

Ricardo Reis
