The amazing American contemporary painter and photographer, Chuck Close, became known for his photorealistic, massive-scale portraits. In 1988 a spinal artery collapse left him severely paralyzed, but he continued to paint--and developed his signature pixalated portraits. Close also suffers from a condition called prosppagnosia, face blindness, where he is unable to recognize faces. Painting portraits helps him to recognize faces--pretty darn amazing! Have you ever noticed that many people have names that match what they do?
