Interesting Quote

January 4, 2011

The image of the face, as the constitutive element of the portrait, is traditionally regarded as a mirror of the soul and a medium of identification.

“The face is where we are,” says photographer Jonathan Miller: “We kiss, eat, breathe and speak through it. It’s where we think of ourselves as being finally and conclusively on show. It’s the part we hide when we are ashamed and the bit we think we lose when we are in disgrace.”
