18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

Hewitt is a family friend who agreed to let me take his portrait. I asked him to wear a piece of kente cloth and he allowed me to paint a design on his face. His face has a beautiful structure that makes him look like a bronze sculpture. The close cropping creates a greater emphasis on his striking features.
