What Toni Morrison Taught Us About Life

Photo taken by the Author, at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery

I took the above photo while visiting the National Portrait Museum in Washington, DC. One of the most captivating images that I came across, I stared in awe for quite some time. For all of its simplicity, the neutral background, minimal colors and the absence of space-filling objects, I felt it was a profound capture of Toni Morrison’s essence. It was just her, as it should be. Just her is enough.
