Excerpt from the interview

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: "The older I grow the more I believe that it’s our perceptions of a certain situation that are the most important factor . . . How do we perceive it? And what can we learn from it? Those seem to be ways to keep the mind on something creative and positive, rather than falling into the trap of anything negative."
