A letter from the artist:

“Dear Collector, 
You just don’t know how special you are. You have mystery to uncover, family to meet, a foundation of love, tragedy, strength and pride in your past that I hope can cover you with a loving glow and support you when you are unsure. Let me show you how to see these faces from the past as your neighbors. They have so much to teach us. Each visage serves as a conduit for the mind to explore the past. He or she is your muse to step out of the singularity of your life and see the world from a different vantage point.
