Rarely do we see others (or ourselves) in profile. Yet profiles illuminate a person’s strengths, courage, and vulnerabilities. I choose my subjects for their distinctive, distinguishing features. The topography of a face in profile fascinates and challenges me. The more limited depth constraints of a profile can lead to the most striking results. I find this unusual view to be elegant and mysterious, at once simplifying and yet strengthening. I want to show the rarely seen side view when a personality and a story emerge in their simplest form.
