Talking Portraits by James Gurney

“In 1981, artist James Gurney brought his sketchbook and tape recorder to the pier in Santa Monica, California. He did a pencil portrait of two guys there and then asked them to describe themselves to the tape recorder. For the first time, their faces and voices are brought together in a talking portrait.”
