Theresa Fritz 2001 – Ice Hotel in Canada Makes no Sense

2001 The Canadian

I found this article from 2001 and decided it should be documented. There is not a day I do not miss her.

We live now in a world of selfies and readily available photos at our fingertips.
I admit I have to force myself to take pictures of those closest to me. It’s this weird little brain glitch about privacy. And also about the camera not showing reality.
I mean, selfie mode on every phone has an auto filter, reducing lines and discolorations, so I KNOW I don’t look like the pics. “Objects in selfie are younger and slimmer than reality.”
But the other point is that when I take pics of friends and family, I’m rarely satisfied with what it captures. They are always so much MORE in reality. More beautiful. More effervescent. More light glowing from within. A photo is not good enough. It doesn’t do justice to those I love.
When my friend Theresa died two weeks ago, these photos came to my mind. I could see them clearly, but couldn’t bring myself to look at them. This past week, I dug out photo albums and couldn’t find them. Yesterday I located them. I have so few.
My theory holds. They don’t do her justice. A picture is a fraction of a second. Somewhere around 1/60 with flash. Less than the time of a heartbeat. These do not convey her energy, or humour, or intelligence or love.
But take photos anyway. Take them to remember what is in front of you, as memory prompts for what was, and of the love in that moment.
