New Views in Portraiture

March 7, 2009

Good news from Amy Stein via subjectify. Jen Davis is getting her refreshing self-portraits and pictures of men in circulation. Her I Ask in Exchange series has many fine examples of the “female gaze.”

My last post, and the one before that, was mostly about flesh and how beautiful it looks photographed. Jen Davis is proving my point with pictures of  perfect visual poetry.

Over at LensCulture I found out about a show at the Russian Tea Room in Paris. Look Me In the Eyes: Russian Photographic Portraits has some wonderful examples of my favorite genre.
