These are roughs for a project I did in 1997 for a short-lived magazine, Vice Versa.
The portraits are of strangers I met in London, mostly on the Southbank. I explained the project to them and asked them if I could take their photograph. Some of them said no. I never knew their names. The aphorisms are by well-known cultural figures of the 20th century, on the question What is Art? They are identified here by first name only.
