On Face Value
The great portrait photographer Richard Avedon once said, “Faces are the ledgers of our experience.”
I like taking photos of people. Set-up head shots, against a backdrop or environmental…the whole thing.
I really like photojournalism, I love documentary photography. But…
I want to be a great portrait photographer.
Like Avedon. Like Penn. Like Platon.
A few weeks ago, I decided to enter some of my portraits in the LensCulture Portrait Contest.
Not the one of Matt, above. These:
Lots of great and interesting work here. Some that even make me raise my eyebrows and scratch my head.
I wasn’t part of the 39. Maybe I was number 40. Who knows.
I guess I still have a lot of work to do.
