I photographed Mike for many years and tried to capture his actions with the hope of understanding his expressions.
Mike’s hand is often on the side of his face, as you can see in Telepathy and Time Travel. He also had a habit of bringing his arm down forcefully onto his chest (see As If). Nobody knows if this was a behavior or a complex Tourettic tic.
*Mike is my older brother who is autistic, low functioning and nonverbal.
