There is an abundance of portraiture used today in advertising and photographic art. In advertising, people often are only able to offer a “drive-by” experience where they acknowledge the image and visually throw it away. It’s not often stared at for long periods of time like a sculpture or painting might be. Most portraiture in art photography is a “capture” of beauty, while some is conceptual, exposing an irony or providing a commentary with intent. We all can identify to the human subject, regardless of what they are doing. My art adds to the human experience, allowing an escape or mutual understanding through photographic expression created rather than captured.
