잊어야 할 일은 잊어요. 아직까지 잠들지 못했나요. 잊어야 할 일은 잊어요. 아직 나는 잘 모르겠어요.
잊지 못할 사랑을 하고, 또 쉽지 않은 이별을 하고. 쉽지 않은 마음을 알지만 그런 사람이 어디 한둘 인가요.
마음대로 되지 않는 걸 담아둬서 무엇할까요. 잊어야 할 일은 잊고서 새로운 시간으로 떠날까요.
잊어야 할 일은 잊어요 / 브로콜리 너마저
Up now at the Canada Line Waterfront Station as part of the series "On and Off the Road" see "Carpoolers" by Alejandro Cartagena.
In 2011, Cartagena stood atop a bridge running across the highway between Nuevo Laredo and Texas—a lucrative drug corridor between Mexico and the US. From that elevated vantage point, he photographed the many trucks that drove by on their way south to Monterrey, carrying labourers to worksites in the newly built suburbs. These vignettes, capturing a scene rarely visible, manage to straddle public and private space.
The pickup truck beds in Cartagena’s photographs appear highly composed, mimicking historically painterly tableaux such as those of medieval altarpieces. The shallow depth of field and framing provided by the trucks’ walls further act to counter the fast-moving and snapshot-like nature of his images.
