Why is the photo of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez on a yacht so compelling?

The Guardian 28 July, 2021 - 11:10am

You must be talking about singer, songwriter, actor, fragrance mogul and philanthropist Jennifer Lopez’s 52nd birthday pics and in particular, the pièce de résistance: Ben Affleck affectionately touching her butt.

Well firstly, it is familiar to you because it is a recreation of a scene in J Lo’s 2002 music video for the song Jenny from the Block, in which Lopez argues that despite her success and considerable material wealth, she is still the same down to earth woman who grew up in Castle Hill, the Bronx.

The lyrics include the lines: “Can’t forget to stay real / to me it’s like breathing”; “I stay grounded as the amounts roll in”; and “Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got / I’m still (I’m still) Jenny from the block”.

The music video is a stream of scenes made to look like paparazzi footage. In one scene, Affleck strokes Lopez’s butt adoringly as they sail on a yacht.

Art critic John Berger teaches us that a photograph “isolates, preserves, and presents a moment taken from a continuum”. In this case, that continuum begins with Affleck and Lopez’s relationship, starting in 2002. In 2003, they called their wedding off with just days to go, due to “excessive media attention”. This is poignant because: see above music video. In 2004, they broke up.

We can pretend, for a brief moment, that all the bad things that have happened since 2002 – the great recession, Trump, Brexit, Covid – didn’t actually happen at all. Lopez’s body has not aged. She is with Affleck, about whom she sang – on the album that included Jenny from the Block – “I love you, you’re perfect / A manifestation of my dreams / … / You will always be / My lust, my love, my man, my child, my friend, and my king.”

In no artist who has ever lived is this more clearly represented than in Benjamin Affleck. He is the poster-boy for smoking and being sad. He has done this while wearing a face mask over just his nose, with one hand in his pocket and his eyes closed, inhaling, as the Cut put it, “through the pain of his existence”, and while looking thin, on a balcony. He is also sad when he vapes.

He has stared out at the sea while wearing a towel high up on his torso. But he turned his back on that sea, and tried again. “Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster,” wrote Nietzsche. Affleck has gazed into the abyss, but he looked away before it could gaze back at him.

“Every exceptional work was the result of a prolonged successful struggle,” wrote Berger. “The phoenix must burn to rise from the ashes”, wrote someone on Twitter. Affleck walked so we could run.

I leave you with this: “The uniqueness of the original now lies in it being the original of a reproduction. It is no longer what its image shows that strikes one as unique; its first meaning is no longer to be found in what it says, but in what it is.”

Barbara Boxer, 80, a former U.S. senator, announced Monday on her official Twitter account that she had been assaulted and robbed but was not seriously hurt.

Boxer, D-Calif., served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 10 years and a U.S. senator for 24 years before stepping down in 2017.

The Oakland Police Department confirmed in a statement that it was investigating the assault of a victim who was walking on the 300 block of Third Street in Oakland. The police department would not release the name of the victim. Officers were still searching for the suspect, who fled in a nearby waiting vehicle.

Boxer’s official Twitter account said the assailant pushed her in the back and took her cellphone.

“She is thankful that she was not seriously injured,” the statement said.

The Jack London Square neighborhood is an entertainment district along the waterfront in Oakland that has restaurants, a farmers market and a summer concert and movie series.
