The grouping of the subjects here is fairly arbitrary. Nono, for example, is based on a family photograph, while Forever is Only Minutes comes from a 1953 issue of Life magazine. The men seem to be leaving the centre clear for some expected arrival, giving tension to the scene.

Likewise, Dr. Max Bombis was profiled in the January 1953 issue of Life. He was a Swiss businessman and a fixer in the trade in black market industrial materials from Vienna to the Soviet bloc. I was struck with familiarity by the melancholy in his expression.
