I love faces; or perhaps more accurately, I love the way people inhabit their faces.
Some say a good portrait captures the essence of a person, as though a person only has one side to them.
And yet, a photograph is a single instant in a continual movement through time. Our faces rarely stay still for more than a few moments, so no one position can accurately embody all the others.
It would rather be like hitting a single note and somehow thinking it represented an entire opera.
Photography is not about capturing reality, it is about creating stories. Each image should require the viewer to make assumptions or ask further questions about the person featured, the environment and the emotional landscape
Equally important is the notion of collaboration. Portrait photography is not product photography; it is not just about accurately reproducing a likeness. That's for passport photos
The best portraits, then, are not only about how the photographer has lit or positioned the subjects, but what the subjects bring of themselves to the process. They collaborate in the creation of the story.
Portrait photography is a place to explore moods, personalities and fantasies.
And I love it.
