The attack of September 11, 2001 on the World Trade Center in New York was what triggered the series entitled N.Y.FACES. These works are composed of passport photos and close-ups of my dental operation. On the reverse sides, I included news reports from the period of the attack that I had torn out of the papers. The mouth, especially, plays an important role in revealing pain and violence, and here I purposely show a mouth, wide open, as an expression of the most intense feelings.
