‘can you feel me now?’ began
with encounters at a local drop-in centre.
I attempted to revisit portraiture, to
visualize meeting the ‘inner’ person.
I used a model and was challenged to
reveal the authentic self, not the nice
person that one hopes to discover.
For a second series, I considered the

ubiquitous cellphone, again to portray
the person from the inside-out. Cellphone
texting certainly helps us locate each
other in time and space yet how well do
we truly engage — where is ‘presence’,
and how is ‘empathy’ realized through
bits of phrases and disembodied sharing?
