The loss of a close friend and colleague

Tomas Evjen, my close friend and colleague since mid-80's, is dead. Writing this feels both surreal and sad. Life is an unpredictable place.

Tomas was my regular and trusted cameraman in the ongoing Symbiophonies series, most recently the Director of Photography on the art film VICINO ALLA MONTAGNA.

His complete dedication to his work and unique style and power will be deeply missed and impossible to replace.

Today, my thoughts go his closest family and friends.

Quiet, Quiet

Quiet, Quiet Silence of darkness
Journey into deepened woods
Creature comforts being so worthless
If a heart must bleed tonight

We dissolve under sinking tombstone
Life will end in a few more sweeps
Birds will sing and the horse will canter
Brown escape towards distant leaps

Quiet, Quiet Bluebells are sleeping
Comfort in the moon conveyed
Thoughts broke with the rulings of mankind
Convicts begged, the reverend prayed

Then the sun spread its ray of glory
And we cried in the sea so black
On the shore sat the Gloomy Reaper
Mother deer on a silver track
Quiet, Quiet Stars are a 'speaking
Cones from heaven falling twice
End is near, the nightfall draws closer
Hardship like a stone of ice

As the torrent gives consolation
With its friend in the deepest blue
I perceive, I can feed the pigeons
With the same that will comfort you

Flint Juventino Beppe (1987)
