The first is of 18-year old Philip Soussou. As all 411 seniors at Boston Latin School in the US arrived for their final day of classes they stumbled on portraits of themselves along the corridors.
Philip sketched self portraits of his entire class as a parting gift, using charcoal and worked on the project sometimes late into the evening. He worked on it everyday for four months and although he didn't know each student personally, he got names from the school registry and used Facebook and sometimes his phone camera to take photos without giving anything away.
