The verb Tear-trace is commonly used to express sincere sadness or sarcasm about a minor problem, and is accompanied by the finger gesture that traces the path that a tear would make along one’s cheek. But the word Tear, in addition to meaning in Italian lacrima, also has value for strain, cut, gash.
The fragments of the photographs found show not only the tear, but the act and the will of a separation; they are shreds of memories that wanted to be forgotten. These incomplete images leave a hidden trace resting on the photosensitive paper sheet like a white shadow that has never taken light. It would soon vanish if the photograph was gone.
