To My Father

This photo is not just a photo. It is life that moves toward life, and as the director says, "… the prettiest part of the photo is that it does not get older even though we do". Then he closes his camera and leaves. Leaving us with boys' laughter and their hopeful eyes looking silently at vast spaces in which they cannot find their own spot yet.
