What exactly makes a good portrait? I posted these three images as a play off of contemporary portraiture. A seemingly natural portrait, staged portrait and representation of a portrait (ala television). Does one tell a stronger story than another? It seems unfair to make broad generalizations as it seems a strong image just speaks for itself..
but curiosity does strike..

i hope you get some input here Amy. for me, my outlook changes constantly. every time i think i have it defined (for myself) i see another portrait that spoils my neat little definition.

i'm beginning to think that if it can't be defined...then we're on to something..
