THE MAGIC OF PORTRAIT
Friends, families, professional, artist, couples.........
"Portrait photographs are special because by definition there are at least two people involved in their making: the photographer and the sitter. Neither has complete control over the other. And so portraiture becomes a negotiation between parties, a dance of wills that results in a collaboration of sorts. In the very best portraits, both sides play a part. The photographer pries loose those things that words can’t describe, that ineffable essence that makes a person who they are."
Phillip Prodger, Head of photographs at the National Portrait Gallery
