one of two portrait projects I've
got going at the moment - who was it who once said it's hard
to dislike someone when they are asleep? probably true if
only because with no eye contact, there's no threat to the
power of the beholder.
i have begun by asking some family
and friends to sit for awhile, close their eyes and relax.
gradually a calm descends. and after a minute or so i take
a few photos. it is a very quiet moment.
