“The writer knows perfectly well – as well as the photographer does – how a great writer should appear in photograph: tough if a man, pretty if a woman, white-haired in either case.”
–Annie Dillard

Presenting portraits in oil of writers when they were young, before they were known for their work, Dillard hopes to show that they “were just ordinary people.” 

“My hope is that future young writers will not despair that they look ordinary. Almost everyone does. That’s what ordinary means. Appearance has nothing to do with genius or talent or originality or anything else important. Appearance is misinformation.”
