Portraits

SET OF BLACK AND WHITE PORTRAITS

There are many ways to achieve a portrait, from the very direct and literal to the more abstract and expressive approach. In this section we show portraits and photographs of people in a variety of settings that can all be interpreted as portraits.
Since the dawn of photography people have made portraits. With the introduction of the daguerrotype around the middle of the 19th century the demand surged due to this relatively cost effective way in making portraits. In this day and age it has moved to a digital platform and one of the more popular styles of portraiture is the ‘selfie’.

SET OF COLOUR PORTRAITS
Color photography was attempted beginning in the 1840s. Early experiments were directed at finding a “chameleon substance” which would assume the color of the light falling on it. Some encouraging early results failed to remain stable and images faded quickly.
