Portaiture

“When I first started making portraits for magazines, I realized my images were going to be competing against giant headlines, so I decided to make my pictures into logos - very bold, and very declaratory. I also wanted to create a stark, even unforgiving realism with my lihgting. My ambition is to show more truth in my images than viewers are comfortable with. I think the secret of making a good portrait is to go into it being brutally honest.”  —  Platon
