Sonia with Eyes Opened

The breadth of characteristic information held by a resting face is hard to imagine until the eyes are opened. It becomes apparent how relative and connected each feature is to the other in this delicate ballet that we call facial expression. The only features on Sonia’s face  that I changed were her eyes and all of a sudden there’s new significance to the corner of her mouth , the weight of her cheek or, angle of her brow. Perspective and light further the awakening and change the expressions with every turn. Her face seems to  express changing notions at every angle.
