Felt there was a lack of documentary photographers and photo journalists on Wanderlustagraphy. Whenever I look at this kind of work it makes me wish I had the guts to pursue such hard stories. But then again, it's not for all of us. For those of you pursuing such stories or know of somebody that is, get that work over here. I'd love to have it on the site.

All eyes on you.

Ever noticed how photography allows us to stare with such concentration to every detail and beauty of another that you can get lost within the topography of a face or gesture? Portraiture lures me in this way. It allows for the most eloquent staring contest.

Food for thought:

"When you begin a picture, you often make some pretty discoveries. You must be on guard against these. Destroy the thing, do it over several times. In each destroying of a beautiful discovery, the artist does not really suppress it, but rather transforms it, condenses it, makes it more sustainable. What comes out in the end is the result of discarded finds. Otherwise, you become your own connoisseur. I sell myself nothing." - Pablo Picasso (1935)
