A2  P O R T R A I T A2 P O R T R A I T Presentation Transcript

  • PORTRAITURE
    A2 PHOTOGRAPHY
  • QUESTIONS
    How have photographers attempted to reveal more about the sitter for a portrait than merely their appearance?
    Compare and Contrast how the portrait has changed throughout the history of photography.
    Compare and contrast how the development of photographic portraiture has been influenced by Painting and vice versa.
    To reveal the individual before his camera, to transfer the living quality of that individual to his finished print...Not to make road maps but to record the essential truth of the subject; not to show how this person looks, but to show what he is. - Edward Weston - Edward Weston's definition of the role of the portrait photographer. ("The Portrait in Photography", Reaktion Books, London 1992, Mick Gidley, p136 – 137). Discuss portraits by a number of photographers that seem to articulate Weston’s vision for portraiture and compare them with those that fall short.
    Creativity with portraits involves the invocation of a state of rapport when only a camera stands between two people...mutual vulnerability and mutual trust. - Minor White,(Mirrors, messages, manifestations by Minor White)
