Artist's Description

I do volunteer work in a home for the mentally handicapped. (Actually, I go with some cameras every week and let some of the residents teach me how to look at the world.)

Gilles is profoundly autistic. His autism is increasing over time. Gilles interacts with the world by circling around it. My first impression was of an airplane circling around an airport.

It’s taken three months for us to interact. I was at the annual show put on by the residents and staff of the home, and Gilles made my day: I asked him whether I could take his photo. I had two cameras, one with a white lens and one with a black one (a wide-angle). Gilles chose the wide-angle. This is his portrait. It means a lot to me.

Canon 5DII + 16-35 mm f/2.8 II. Post-processing in LR3.
