The Limited Times

Now you can see non-English news...

your face tomorrow


What if the profile photo of your social networks, instead of being fixed in the present, showed the movie of your life?

In the tombola of family resemblances, my face was touched by my father's eyes and mouth, my grandmother's skin and nose.

Over the years, however, I think I have gained a certain air from my mother, despite the fact that she has tried to be blonde since she was 30 and I would like to persist in being brown even in her old age.

My left eyebrow responds to the stress of her by rising up on the warpath like hers, no matter how hard I try to tame it.

The photographs allow us to follow those clues —pouts, gestures— and find ourselves even in the faces of those who are no longer there (or them in us), fueling a conversation that is not interrupted by absence.

We are also that story:

that of the DNA that is expressed in a family panache and wraps us up.



recently recommended the usefulness of changing your profile photo on social networks beyond a whim, with a certain method, every three years or less, in case the modification of the appearance could lead to disagreements (romantic and professional dates have suffered devastating impacts due to the distance between the posted image and reality).

That tic for the update reminded me of an award-winning photographic project, which manages to offer both the photo and the film of its protagonists.

"The Arrow of Time" is a work that the photojournalist Diego Goldberg began in 1976. Every June 17 he and his family photograph themselves in black and white.

This private ritual replicates their conditions: one by one, in front of the camera, they stop the arrow of time at that moment.

And although each solo portrait documents that stop, when looking at the series

what we see is the unstoppable movement


The repetition of the scene that began as a whisper (face, camera, click) has become an existential whirlwind due to accumulation: youth mutated into maturity, the children of that time already have bushy beards and children of their own.

The set portrays a throbbing family tree.


asks for little;

let's go for more

The online profile photo should not be a fixed image, detached from the context, but a kaleidoscope capable of containing time, change and showing your various faces.

Worth the tip for entrepreneurs.

Elon Musk you are taking a long time.
