" 'It feels as if there is something concealed within these pictures. It pertains to the inner journey of self-reflection that I have been undertaking for the past 20 years. Most portraits in the series capture individuals in contemplative moments, and perhaps they are, in fact, portraits of myself.' - François Jonquet
