PORTRAITS OF POWER
We all have someone who has inspired us. For me it is the famous photographer simply known as platon.
It is no secret that black and white portraits move my soul! In my opinion they capture the attention of people.
"A portrait to me is about closeness" -- Platon
Telling ones story through #portraits
A portrait means something different to every photographer. The above quote by Platon holds true to many of us. Platon's work while simple to many is so incredibly powerful. Platon has photographed more Presidents and powerful individuals than any photographer I know of.
His work has appeared all over the world including the covers of The New Yorker. Studying the work of others helps to inspire us as photographers. If your interested in learning more about #Platon and his amazing work, here is a link to his work.
