Collection of the artist
Félix de la Concha video- and audio-taped his portrait sessions. A brief split-screen excerpt appears below, presenting the sitter as well as the ongoing work of the artist.
Transcription: "I feel that so many people have helped me--whether it was monetary or whether it was just listening when I needed someone to talk to--I feel it's an obligation of mine to just pay it forward and do the same for others, you know. I can't just sit around and live life not making an effort to help someone. It's not anything religious; it's just me making an attempt to improve the world, I guess. Make just a small effort. "
