About portraiture


When making a portrait of someone, you see yourself in that portrait, like looking into a mirror. I read something like that from an interview on American SuburbX (of Richard Avedon, maybe).

It's trust or doubt in the subject's eyes.

It's a cold or warm feeling toward the photographer.

It's not only the subject but your own interpretation of him/her. 

I've just created a blog, Faces @ Not really a "portfolio", just a place I come to see the face of someone again, or just to see myself..
