I promised that this blog site would not be about current events, so this entry is about photo tools. There are roles that I adore. One of them is La Cieca. My lens has always been drawn to this character. How glorious it would have been if the optics had allowed crawling into that role thirty-three years ago. It wasn't possible in 1975 when Fedora Barbieri was La Cieca. Now it's possible to get into the guts of this character. Of course, there has to be an artist who becomes this character..... heartbreaking, poignant. My long lens was glued to Ewa Podleś.
