“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
Fine art portraiture photography transcends the mere representation or recording of a person’s likeness. It stems from an artistic motivation or deliberate intent. It epitomizes the artistic intuition, skills, and creativity of the artist rather than the features or capabilities of the medium or tools used in its elaboration. It summons imagination, makes an aesthetic statement, arouses an emotional connection and inspires intellectual curiosity. These principles are the guiding elements that makes every image we produce a work of art.
