It was for me a very hard read but I will so go back and reread chapters to gain further understanding.
It looks at portraits from a very different perspective, and questions what is a portrait, and what makes a image a portrait.
It considers DNA scans as portraits as well as old style paintings and photography, if done with certain characteristics.
