Tribute to the breaks

Stopping for a moment, taking a break, the images I present here share this theme in different keys; whether one elaborates on it in a slightly playful sense, with tenderness or with irony, it alludes to a fundamental human capacity: that of interrupting what one is doing to devote oneself to something else, or to nothing, perhaps only for a moment, and then putting it aside and returning to the previous activity, in a word flexibility.

Automata, robots, never stop until they are ordered to do so from the outside, they have only one dimension and are obtusely tireless.
Men and women are not, in order to survive as human beings they need to rest, to think of something else, to change their register.

These images, both when they invite one to stop and look at something and when they portray the act of taking a break, are meant to be a slightly ironic tribute to pauses, in a hectic period a time when in a more general sense ‘taking a break to think’ would not seem a bad idea.
