Andrei and Arseny Tarkovsky: Father & Son

Andrei Tarkovsky was born to poet Arseny Tarkovsky (1907-1989). Arseny Tarkovsky is considered one of the great 20th century Russian poets and was a prominent translator. These are some of our favorite portraits. More will be posted here. Scroll down for a fragment of his famous poem called “Life, Life”.

“I don’t believe in omens or fear
Forebodings. I flee from neither slander
Nor from poison. Death does not exist.
Everyone’s immortal. Everything is too.
No point in fearing death at seventeen,
Or seventy. There’s only here and now, and light;
Neither death, nor darkness, exists.
We’re all already on the seashore;
I’m one of those who’ll be hauling in the nets
When a shoal of immortality swims by.”
