About the Book
Portraits were made in all parts of the world where I have lived and traveled. "What interests me in a portrait is the presence of the person in front of me. Whether the picture is made in China, Egypt, or in the United States, my goal is to capture a unique personality in a particular moment, to allow the viewer to encounter the individual beyond the pose."
