The loss of a close friend and colleague

Tomas Evjen, my close friend and colleague since mid-80´s, is dead. Writing this feels both surreal and sad. Life is an unpredictable place.
Tomas was my regular and trusted cameraman in the ongoing Symbiophonies series, most recently the Director of Photography on the movie Vicino alla Montagna.

His complete dedication to his work and unique style and power will be deeply missed and impossible to replace.

Today, my thoughts go his closest family and friends.

Quiet, Quiet

Quiet, Quiet - no one must notice
My journey into darkened woods
Kindness will not mend inner scarring
If a heart must bleed tonight
We dissolve into sinking graveyards
Life will end in a few more years
Birds will sing and the horse will canter
Brown escape towards distant fields

Quiet, Quiet - bluebells are sleeping
Comfort in the moon so bright
Thoughts broke with the rulings of mankind
Convicts begged - the reverend prayed
Then the sun spread its rays of glory
And we moaned in the sea so black
On the shore sat the gloomy reaper
Mother deer with her little calf

Quiet, Quiet - stars are a'speaking
Cones are falling on my path
The goal is near – the ending draws closer
My hurt feels like a stone of ice
As the torrent gives consolation
With his friend in the deepest blue
I perceive; I can feed the pigeons
With the same that will comfort you

Flint Juventino Beppe (1987)
