Dr. Scilla ELWORTHY, a three times Nobel Peace Prize nominee, has held on to a profound question for much of her life.

“… how can you deal with superior force without using force yourself?”, or in a different phrasing, “… how do you deal with a bully without becoming a thug?”

This human portrait, shot in my very early days with the camera (2006), catches the sense of quiet courage that appears to have characterized much of her life.
