“There is something undeniably magnetic about photo portraiture that defies easy explanation. I often wonder whose identity is revealed to me in a portrait that speaks to me. Is it really the sitter, or is it something internal to me, that maps onto my memory in a powerful way?   Maybe a fragment—a mere moment in time— is, after all, the best way to find connection with another person.”
