The photo below, as ordinary as it is, was an inspiration My brother Mike just turned 40 when I took this picture, almost 30 years ago. I always craved attention from him, which he never gave. I almost needed a magnifying glass to notice that his left eye was looking right at me. It was as if his gaze took me into his brain.
I made an enlargement of this photo and cut it in half. I held up the left half of this picture to the mirror and made a fantasy portrait of him. I made him look at me with both his eyes.
