Portraits express a certain intimacy that is absent from figure free frames. While all images tell stories, faces trigger an empathic response – do I know you, are we alike, do I want to know you, let me understand. Photographer Shea Naer notes that photography speaks to the fluidity of time rather than the impossible freeze.
A common perception is that photography freezes a moment, but this notion might be an illusion that image-making offers us. A picture which carries gravitas will transcend logical time, and seduce the viewer into another frame of reference.
