This young man sat very still during his session, making it easier to find his likeness. I enjoyed listening to him talk about his work and his family at home. Even though we saw each other regularly at school, and I always loved listening to his take during critiques, I didn’t get a clear idea of who he was until I sat with him for this portrait session. We had quiet moments where we didn’t speak, and it reminded me how much I enjoy just being in someone’s presence, even if our minds are in different places.~Tali
