I’mpleased to present the first of many articles on the smile in portrait
photography and fine art portrait photography.
Please read my article “”Smile!”: A Polemic on Fine Art Portraiture” found here:
This is a huge project that has a research component to it. Lindsay Maldonado is my research guru and we will analyze data as soon as participation in our survey tapers off, or our “N” overwhelms us. We would like this to be in early 2012.
Please share this article with anyone interested in Photography, Contemporary Photography, the History of Photography, Portraiture and Fine Art Portraiture.
Many thanks to: Kenneth Gewerth, Dana Cushing, Rachel Ann Foster, Christy Karpinski and Rod Slemmons.
