The Fascinating Images of AAP Magazine #31 Portrait
Portrait photography is strengthened by a wide variety of forms and methods, ranging from identifying to the most sensitive approach of capturing emotions (including its potential to heighten the model or educate the audience). It goes beyond set studio photographs or ordinary family portraits to become a genre in its own right, allowing photographers to express their full creative potential. A portrait can elicit a variety of responses, including those that describe, reveal, embellish, question, and unsettle. However, if a portrait has a thousand faces, we could only display a few of them, thus in this new issue of AAP Magazine, 25 photographers from 11 different countries and four continents share their perspectives.
