“I’m Not There” by Pol Úbeda Hervàs

View all 6 Photos

The photographic series by Pol Úbeda Hervàs “I’m not there” suggests a pending state of being. Ghost like images reveal a reflection in the water, yet no one standing there to take ownership. Every picture has the same pair of precisely positioned shoes leaving a clue as to the type of man that was there at one time, other than that all we have to go off of is a silhouette with a shaggy hairline.
They give notion that you could disappear from today (maybe tomorrow too), but still leave a trail that you were here, a legacy, you know, without the blood sweat and tears.

How can we accept that we are changing?
How can we accept we hardly recognize ourselves in certain situations?
I am changing at this very moment of my life.
I do not react in the same ways I used to. I am surprised. Is that me?
These pictures are the way I see myself now.
My shadow is there but I erase myself because I don´t know who I am any longer.
The shoes remain only to make sure there is something more than… a shadow.

Allison

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
