Photograph of Wind

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

My daughter's name is Maya. I've been told that the word maya means illusion in Hindu philosophy. As I watch her growing up, spinning like a top around me, I realize that her childhood is not something I can grasp but rather - like the wind - something I feel tenderly brushing across my cheek.

"Sachs suspends in time a single moment of her daughter."
