Friends, 2013. Oil on linen; 56 x 80 cm

Blitz photographed his daughter and her friend walking home from school, completely insulated and genuinely bonded by their childhood and friendship. To emphasize their precious isolation, he set them on a lakeside dock. 

The omission of the town's name, the omission of the railings but not their shadows and a powerful central perspective give an almost surrealistic feel to this painting.
