Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

Photo license: © All rights reserved

This portrait reminds me of the African masks that were so influential among the Cubist painters--particularly Picasso. George is from Ghana where there is a rich tradition of mask carving. He has used mask motifs in his paintings, so this portrait seemed appropriate for George.
