When being portrayed, and knowing that only the future will look back, what do you look at? I believe there is a particular and intense communication, full of hope and urgency ( this, this, is gone, pay attention, forever to this moment ) that bears down on the making of a portrait, and then emanates from it. I know this is what happened with the faiyumi. Forever, you who look from the future, forever, I give you this moment.
