Lydia Goldblatt - Still Here













Lydia Goldblatt's "Still Here," is a quiet but powerful meditation on old age and what it does to the people we love. Goldblatt photographed her father in the last years of his life and also took pictures of her mother, capturing heartbreaking moments that reveal the vulnerability and loss of ageing. I'm reminded of Agn├Ęs Varda who filmed her late husband Jacques Demy before he died because she needed to preserve him in some way. Similarly, Goldblatt seems to use her camera to save what she can of her parents before they are gone.
