Untitled (The Paretta Family Outside)
Pictured: Sam Paretta, Telly Paretta, Jim Paretta
— Indecisive Moments
The young boy visible in Untitled (Four Images of Telly and Sam Paretta) and Untitled (The Paretta Family Outside), both from 2004, may not exist and only the boy’s mother claims to remember him. Her pictures of him disappeared without any explanation and their very existence has been disputed. In some of these images there are empty spaces where he supposedly stood, and in others another person stands in his place. It is unclear if these images are delusions on the part of the woman claiming to be his mother, if the surface of the image has inexplicably changed or if the images themselves have simply been replaced with similar exposures taken moments apart.
