Phillip Toledano –

 起初是因為新週刊看到這句話和這張圖

“没有你的陪伴或你的电话问候,你的父亲只是一个孤独的老头。你的父母只是一对孤独的老伴。”
真的有點兒心酸 說不出的那種

找了下拍攝者Phillip Toledano的相關資料 於是去到了他的專題網站Days with My Father 和父親一起的日子
很是感嘆Phillip Toledano的細心和他鏡頭表現出來的那種真實
這些他3年時間裏的點滴記錄 值得我們去翻閱和感受

在網站上他說到

My Mum died suddenly on September 4th, 2006
After she died, I realized how much she’d been shielding me from my father’s mental state.
He didn’t have alzheimers, but he had no short-term memory, and was often lost.

I took him to the funeral, but when we got home, he’d keep asking me every 15 minutes where my mother was. I had to explain over and over again, that she had died.

This was shocking news to him.

Why had no-one told him?
Why hadn’t I taken him to the funeral? 
Why hadn’t he visited her in the hospital?

He had no memory of these events.

After a while, I realized I couldn’t keep telling him that his wife had died. He didn’t remember, and it was killing both of us, to constantly re-live her death.

I decided to tell him she’d gone to Paris, to take care of her brother, who was sick.
And that’s where she is onw.

This is a journal.

An ongoing record of my father, and of our relationship.
For whatever days we have left together.

……….

裏面還有很多話(每一段文字)寫的都很真誠而感人
是的 这不是一个关于逝去的故事,更多的,是一个关于生命,关于我们在一起的故事。

有時間的話 就請細細去品讀吧
