Historical Context:
“There are mystically in our faces certain character which carry in them the motto of our souls, wherein he that cannot read A, B, C may read our natures." -Sir Thomas Brown. "Portraits of young children reveal their initial truths and values. I invite you to look, as well as listen, to each portrait. Let the camera tell you what truth each child embodies and what values each child represents. Portraiture provides a way for us to look at the lights and shadows of each glorious being for the child is living art." -Heather Elizabeth Dixon
