Look Me in the Eyes: Russian Photographic Portraits
© Oleg Dou, from « Tears » series, Duza, 2008
"A portrait is not merely a resemblance. As soon as an emotion or a happening is translated into photography, it ceases to be a happening and becomes an opinion. Inaccuracy does not exist in photography. All photos are accurate. None of them show the truth."
— Liza Fetissova, from the text for her exhibition, "Look Me in the Eyes: Russian Photographic Portraits"
