About the artwork

The photograph depicts a homeless person. Lee Jeffries is biased to front on views andclosely frames the face. Processing in black and white reinforces the contrasts and shapes the portrait. Neither indulgence, nor complaisance, the style is unadorned. Theartist put emphasis on the relief of the face and laid the wrinkles bare like furrows. Thestrength of this photograph lays in the model?s attitude. Lee Jeffries succeeds in magnifying the character who seems both timeless and out of this world. This portrait speaks volumes. A story unfolds. It is no longer possible for the spectator to remain indifferent. The photograph becomes a document which narrates misery, injustice and suffering. Yet, Jeffries? work is stripped of any sordid realism. The portrait is hieratic and true nobility emanates from this face.

Lia Mstislavskaya was born in 1985 in Russia and still lives in Moscow today. Her first photos at age 17 were self-portraits taken with the sole purpose of “having headshots like the stars,” she says. At the beginning, being a photographer didn’t even cross her mind: “When I star...
