you and me and you and me

Since I've started work on some new portrait-based drawings I've been revisiting that part of my collection. Morgan and I talked about identity last night a little and I've been thinking about it today. I pulled these three photographs out of a box of small pocketable pictures mounted on card stock and was struck by the their similarity. Of course, their era of production dictated the possibilities of their manufacture and fashion, but it's also interesting how their faces are similar too- I think that probably I picked them because I unconsciously recognized my own face in them. It's all about the eyes-- they're looking at you look at them look at you.
