Why am I so drawn to “character” studies? Why do the faces in front of my lens mesmerize me so?
I have come to realize that great portraiture is not only a privilege but takes time. Anyone can “snap” a photo but
a great portrait becomes a bond between the photographer and the person on the other side of the lens. A deep trust must develop.
Time opens the discussion. Seeing and caring for the subject allows more doors (and sides of the character) to surface.
Very privileged and private work indeed!
