12 Portraits by 11 Photographers…..

with 2 comments

In keeping with my ongoing studies and an exercise that one of my supervisors Helen Ennis had me do, here are 12 of my favourite portraits by 11 different photographers (simply had to include two by Diane Arbus. Too many to choose from because she was, quite simply, a genius, but these ones I am quite enamoured with):
