Anningonpaiste

Tanaan minut valtasi aivan valtava suru. Sellainen, jota en oikein osaa ymmartaa enka kasitella. Kaipaus jotain sellaista kohtaan, jota ei koskaan ole tuntenut.

Vahan niinkuin se kaukainen tati, josta kuulet aina hurjia, toinen toistaan upeampia tarinoita, mutta joka kuoli kauan ennen syntymaasi. Niin kovin haluaisit menna sen upean ihmisen kanssa tuopille, kuulla kaikista niista seikkailuista, mutta et vaan voi. Et koskaan saanut siihen edes mahdollisuutta. Etka saa.

 Tanaan minulla oli ikava Marttaa.

En voisi koskaan tavata hanta, enka ketaan hanen kaltaistaan. En koskaan, en ikina. Yhtakkia ihan kaikki tuntui jotenkin niin lopulliselta. Olen surullinen miettiessani, milta Martasta mahtoi tuntua elamansa viimeisina ja yksinaisina hetkina. Ei mahdollisuutta rakastua, ei pariutua, ei kommunikoida. Milta mahtaisi tuntua olla lajinsa viimeinen?

Sitten iski suru ja murhe myos monia muita kohtaan. Kuten:

 Kvaggaa..

Karvaista sarvikuonoa (karvakuonoa!) ...

seka joutsenliskoa.

Kasi ylos, kenen mielesta David Hasselhoff on se tyyppi, kenet menisit pyytamaan viimeisiin hitaisiin?

Noh, en minakaan olisi nostanut katta. Ennen tata kuvaa.

Onneksi tiedamme nyt paremmin.

 Kuvaajat ja kuuluisat kuvat. Tim Mantoani, kiitos!

Mark Seliger: "Originally an inside opener for Rolling Stone cover story of Nirvana in conjunction with the release of In Utero, my first Polaroid (with Negative) was by far the most emotional and revealing of his spirit. Two months later Kurt died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head. This photograph became the memorial RS cover."

Steve McCurry holds his 1984 photo of a young woman from Peshawar, Pakistan. "I looked for this girl for 17 years and finally found her in 2002. Her name is Sharbat Gula."

Brent Stirton: "This is Virunga, the first National Park in Africa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Silverback Mountain Gorilla, along with 6 females, had been killed by a group trying to intimidate conservation rangers into being less proactive in their efforts against poaching & illegal charcoal making. There are only about 40 of these Silverbacks in the world, so the Rangers were devastated at the assassination. This procession went on for about 5 kms, moving the 600 pound body over hills & through the forest. Over 120 of these rangers have died in the last 10 years doing this job; most make less than $10 a month. They're heroes, there's just no other word that seems appropriate to describe these incredible African men.

Mary Ellen Mark: "I am holding my photograph of Ram Prakash Singh and his beloved elephant Shyama — taken in 1990. Ram Prakash Singh was the ringmaster of "The Great Golden Circus." The photograph was done in Ahmedabad India. This was part of my Indian Circus Project. I love India and I love the circus so photographing eighteen circuses all around India was an incredible experience. Unfortunately, Shyama died a few months after this photograph was taken. Supposedly he succumbed to a poisoned chapatti. Ram Prakash Singh was heartbroken. Me also."

Douglas Kirkland: "This is from my Evening with Marilyn."

 Harry Benson: "Brian Epstein — Beatles' manager — had just told them they were number one in America, and I was coming with them to New York, 1964."

Karen Kuehn: "From the 1993 Cats Story shot for National Geographic. The director Thomas Kennedy asked me to shoot an entire story about 'cats.' He did not want it to be typical! So problem solving this assignment was good fun. The Russian Blue Cat and Ballerina legs was inspired by George Balanchine — he used the idea of cats landing always on their toes to teach his dancers."
