Portraits Men

“Barnett invests his subjects with just enough individuality to keep us wondering, “Who are these people?” … They seem responsive to forces that have acted and continue to act upon them, even though such forces are nowhere in evidence. Their presence is at most secondary to the effect they have on the sitters. People, in all their peoplehood, remain not simply central to, but alone at the center of, Suskind’s vision of humanity. There is no theater here, only drama – and it resides deep within.”
