WITHOUT LIGHT THERE IS NO PHOTOGRAPHY, and without portraiture, it’s just documentation. And who needs more documentation.
PORTRAITURE IS A WINDOW INTO THE SOUL, or is that the eyes? Well either way, the saying works. I tend to fall back into portraiture even if I’m in a war zone. If you can’t connect with it emotionally, the story won’t tell. And I need to create a portrait to do that. A portrait of a person, a town, a teapot. It doesn’t matter. It’s a portrait if you can feel the subject, sense the depth, the trust. Then it’s more that a document, or a snapshot, it’s empathy.
