Many portrait books focus on technique and equipment, this one is different and appealingly so. The extended title "A Practical and Theoretical Introduction to Portrait Photography" sums up what it's really about. This book on the theory of portrait photography is split into 12 chapters that cover the following:

  • About Looking

  • Self Portrait - No Face

  • People at the edge of the frame

  • Behaviour in the Moment

  • Voyeurism

  • Portrait, Mirror, Masquerade

  • Confrontation

  • Out of focus

  • Darkness

  • Flash

  • Figures in a Landscape

  • Commentary

Throughout classic portrait photographs are analysed and very details assignments are offered. This book really gets you thinking outside the box, for example one assignment asks you to spend an hour photographing your close friend/relative, without speaking as this will produce very different expressions,
If you enjoy portrait photography and want to go that step further breaking new boundaries, this book will help. Prepare to be educated!
