Life in 35mm


Life in 35 mm. (photo taken by Jasmine Curtis-Smith)

This poem is based on the photo on the right, taken by Jasmine Curtis-Smith

It’s more pronounced, isn’t it?
The way the light just gently
falls upon the skin, revealing
everything that’s there: each
blemish, every line, the imperfections
but also how it captures the feeling,
the joy that is present;
right at the curve of the lips,
that sparkle in the eyes,
the comfortable and welcomed
vulnerability that comes
when one feels safe.

I could never fake that.
The lens reveals all
but it is you
who brings out
what is worth
