The photos by Melba in this exhibition are a destination of the soul. More than images, they are windows that open onto our longing, allowing us to remember this destination which today, even in Formentera, has been more or less lost, has more or less disappeared. Simplicity, searching, being, playfulness, sensuality, a certain arduous purity, and much more are present here. It was not simply that we were young that those of us who had the privilege of living these momentos lejanos have, somewhere deep inside, never been able to settle for less.
I am probably not alone in offering my gratitude to Melba for the profound and delicious ache that these unspeakably meaningful photos provoke.
