“Some people in this book are fully present when the shutter opens, others are elsewhere. We see them. They see us. Others appear pretentious, perhaps revealing more about how they view themselves than they expected to. Wasn't it about just standing in front of the camera? Others are more cautious, seeming to ask themselves why we wish to see them.
But there is no need to ask that.
One face seeks another. That's why portraits are needed.” / Mikael Timm
