Face to Face
Prosopagnosia is a neurological condition characterized by the inability to recognize the faces of familiar people, ranging from family members to your own reflection. Millions of people across the world including popular portrait artist Chuck Close live with this disorder. Through a mix of photography and drawing, I strive to capture the feeling of living in a world of strangers.
“A face is a road map of someone’s life. Without any need to amplify that or draw attention to it, there’s a great deal that’s communicated about who this person is and what their life experiences have been.” - Chuck Close
Man With Red Umbrella
This is what I love. The chance images where everything just happens to fall into place at the right time.
