This work was inspired by the still from the movie “My Blueberry Nights” – which I print screened in 2010 and kept in the folder “Portrait Ideas” till 2012 when finally decided to do this work. At first I actually didn’t know that the photo was from that movie until few days ago when I finally decided to find the info about the photo (after the work was already finished). With a simple Google by Image Search I got a result that it is a still from that movie by Wong Kar Wai with Norah Jones, Jude Law, David Strathairn, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman, etc.
Here the Movie Still which inspired the work:

However I don’t think the work is bad BUT I am not happy with the result – I do see the turn of the head of the “black me” is not caught the right way and this moment specially annoys me when I look at the work…
