New directions in portraiture: At the dawn of photography, almost 200 years ago, was the portrait: our ability to, more or less, instantly capture a moment in time, or likeness of a person, forever. Has the art of the portrait remained constant, or has it changed significantly since the humble beginnings of photography? We explore recent trends and investigate some of the new directions that contemporary portraiture is taking by getting into the minds of Brooke Shaden, Ryan Muirhead and Esther Bunning.
Truth in photography: The photograph, as an unimpeachable record of ‘truth’, has seen photographers both championed and feared as apostles of veracity, writing the gospel truth in light. Unfortunately, the time of “seeing is believing” has passed, and the pedestal on which the photographer - paragon of honesty – stood, has started to crumble. In a world rife with photographic nip and tucks, we ask, has truth in photography become the one thing people no longer believe in?
