Claudio Taras molto espressiva,,,scusa la critica un po' strana ma qua ìe un tipico caso di sdoppiamento ...un qualcosa di schizofrenico...

Roberto De Mitri Claudio... :) ... un bel caso di schizofrenia. bello e fortunato. nato dalla sovrapposizione di due negativi, che, in effetti, ha funzionato piuttosto bene, dando organicità a questa schizofrenia... :)

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Ms. Philomena... :) ... insistent is a correct definition. we can say also an obsessive, persistent portrait. it can have a multiple reading. it can be an attempt to see beyond what we are. it can be an attempt to fragment the ego. it can be a descent towards a reunion with our many natures and souls... and I'm glad you like! thank you very much for the nice comment and the lovely words... :)

Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Roberto, it is always the question: what is the other side? The other side is always the other side, even if the other side is the other side. The insight of the inside meets the same problem, as the outside of outsight. Mostly I meet myself somewhere in between.

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Gérard... :) ... a portrait, I have to say, that can suggest multiple interpretations and open different "way of readings"... also very different... :) ... and thank you very much for the kind comment!
2 July 2018 at 12:56pm
Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Henri... :) ... yes, you are right. the effect is rather strange and it creates a sort of short circuit. the feelings we get from the photo, the type of mood, I think it's a purely subjective matter... :) ... and thank you very much for the kind comment!
2 July 2018 at 01:07pm
Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Jos... :) ... It is difficult (impossible) to define “the other side” if not in terms of itself. Respect to itsself. One side is “the other side” of the side that is other respect to itself. Then I remember the final sentence of a famous Pink Floyd. In which you can hear a voice in the background say a statement as obvious as genial. As simple as enlightening. "There's no dark side in the moon, really. Matter of fact it's all dark ".

So there is no “other side”, because all is “other”.

Then there is no other side of ourselves. Each side is the right side of an opposite side. Every opposite is the right. we are in a loop…

Probably “the other side” then is not the opposite side, but simply the one we do not know. It is enough, then, to know all the sides, to learn to know and recognize all our sides, and perhaps then we could define ourselves as a perfect sphere ... :)

Jos Letschert Interesting thoughts Roberto, thanks for your reflection. By the way, I admire your photo, I didn't told you that. In a way it reminds me to - as prototype I mean- to French philosophers of the Enlightenment.

M W The other side of mirror can be different. Not everything is visible in the mirror. Not everything is reflected. Much still remains hidden. Our inner side remains out of the mirror's reach.

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Thierry... :) ... this can be a correct reading. or can the correct reading be the opposite one? ... :) ... here, in the world of mirrors, nobody really understands what is the right side and what is, instead, the illusory one...
and thank you very much for the kindness!

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Jos... :) ... my presumed culture is rather limited and the French philosophers of Enlightenment is a "terrain" that I admit I do not know well. I am very good at words and often hide my poor culture behind articulated, tortuous and rather "byzantine" reasoning which are nothing more than the simple result of my personal and equally tortuous thought...
but I am happy to know that the French philosophers of Enlightenment they think like me! :D

Jørgen Feldstedt Always two sides in the mirror ... as in ones mind, but when is it the right one? Excellent image, Roberto!
2 July 2018 at 11:46pm
Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Maria... :) ... and you are right! but there are mirrors and mirrors. some show us what is superficial about us. others, on the other hand, work exactly the opposite way. they do not show us what is real, but show us what we truly treasure in the depth of our soul. although we are not always able to recognize our deeper side. even if we are not always able to accept our most hidden side...
now, the mirror has a strong symbolic value. it is a bit a metaphor of our existential condition, a bit a metaphor of our desires...
and thank you very much for the beautiful comment! :)
2 July 2018 at 11:47pm
Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Marko... :) ... you open a door to a world that is no longer simply divided between what is real and what is illusion. but here we enter a true labyrinth. metaphor of metaphor... a universe of mirrors of which we are the main illusion at its center ... :) ... thank you very much for the nice comment and reading!

Roberto De Mitri Jørgen ... :) ... infinite are the dimensions of the mirror. because infinite are the dimensions of the soul that he returns to us. none is wrong. none is the opposite... :)

Roberto De Mitri David... :) ... "Everything isn't seen by eyes, even the heart doesn't see much anymore ..." is a wonderful definition... :) ... thank you very much! :) ... it is not always possible to distinguish one reality only. the eyes, that is the reason, and the heart, they define different realities. we often do not know where the truth resides!
4 July 2018 at 11:20pm
Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri Irina... :) ... you said everything and said everything very well and you expressed my thoughts well. there is little that I can add. the mirror has a strong symbolic value and can be a perfect metaphor of what the human soul is. it has the capacity to reveal the truth to us, but it also has the qualities of deception. it shows us our appearance. but it is also able to bring out what is most profound and secret within us... and thank you very much for the beautiful comment! :)
