A Portrait is like Origami

A good portrait is a piece of mental origami. It should be a complete narrative, a story of a person, a circumstance, a life, folded up into a neat little visual package that your mind unfolds back into that story.

The neat trick is that it might unfold into a different story for everyone who looks at it. But, if it works, it unfolds.
