    I favorited this image a while back but everytime I look at it it makes an even bigger impact of what a truely beautiful portrait it is. Such a sincere look in his eye...I feel like i've talked to him before.

    Tess Denis said (14 Nov 2007):

    The photographer's ability to know the exact moment to bring out the best of the people she's taking the photos of. Also uses light and texture to enhance her photographs.
    Jill is very good at reading people, and each of her photos tell a story - or even more than one.
    Her work is outstanding, and deserves to be exhibited.
