Portraits: Eyes Closed

Portraits: Eyes Closed is an exploratory look at a different type of silence. There is enough noise in the world day to day so asking my subjects, strangers to me, to close their eyes allows both them and me a moment of contemplative silence. There is also a presence of trust on their part to allow me to study them in silence and take their photograph. I imagine the silence as empowering.
