Mimi Gross
Mimi believes the key thing about doing portraits is the relationship you have with the subject. A couple of years ago, she did a portrait of Felix and me. We were at Herring Cove beach and Mimi, as always, had brought a sketchbook. Talking to Mimi gave me the idea to do these portraits. (mp4, 40 sec., 5 mb)
