I Was Expecting Someone Taller is actually a collection of people: working people, old people, street people, famous people--from Josephine Baker to Baryshinikov, a woman "lunching out" with Jesus to a barfly. These poetic portraits are truthful, sometimes tinged with black humour, other times political. Sue Nevill's people break through the flat, artificial surfaces of typical portraits and give us colourful, three-dimensional views of their unexpected natures.
