At the bottom of a photograph of five or six individuals published in a national newspaper I read the following: “From left to right: so-and-so, so-and-so, identity unknown, so-and-so.” I look at them all carefully and then at once I feel a sudden closeness to the unnamed individual. I recognise myself in their lack of identity, their anonymity, their silence, and their historical insignificance. For this is what I am to myself – an unidentified person, utterly intangible and impossible to grasp.
