Portraits of Actors, Part III


Looking through my archives in search of images previously overlooked.

The idea that one’s initial “take” in an edit is the most valid is a mistake. The more one examines and studies any work, present or past, the more likely a once-unappreciated, or missed prize might well be discovered.

With recent digging, I’ve had a chance to discover what I feel are a few worthwhile images.

“Portraits of Actors”, initially created some years ago, have been re-imagined and now speak to my own current vision and imagination.


Jeff Goldblum


Geoffrey Rush
