Why Abigail joined this project
From the beginning I have enjoyed the idea of a portrait exchange. Seeing the pictures Isaias and Nora made from the photograph of me in my studio was compelling and it was nice to then interact on some level by making paintings and drawings of them in return. The project on a whole has been a meaningful way to engage with a group of young people from another culture and background and whom most of us have never met.
