Topographical Portraits

‘Norwich’ Ed Fairburn, 2013

I find these images incredibly moving & intimate.
I love maps, geography & topography…to combine them with portraits, with such masterly skill in pen & ink leaves me breathless. To see the same sitter from so many angles, makes one curious to see if touching that skin will allow her to exhale & make the skin move.
I want to see an animated version of this work…
