PORTRAITS

The subject of a portrait photo usualy is a certain person. The photographer tries to reveal his personality by capturing his look, his pose, his own clothes. Sometimes we can understand the thoughts and intentions of the subject.


But can a portrait photo represent something more than just a subject?... Yes, it can. This is the photographer himself. The amazing portrait collection in these book reveal not only the personality of the subject, it reveals the personality of each photographer as a master and artist.

The way we understand a portrait depends on the photographer, the one who is always, or almost always, invisible in the photo. His way of thinking, the way he works with the subject, uses space, effective lighting and graphics, his idea of creating the image, the way he understands the person who is in front of his camera – all these things, which are not possible to touch, are displayed on a flat and thin sheet of paper – a portrait photo.

"Nostalgia and tradition, melancholy and hope are in the eyes of these potrayed people, making this book almost an treatise of visual philosophy." Stefano W. Pasquini, Studio Cloud 4
