Portrait of an Egg
I've been thinking a lot about portraits lately. What is a portrait? Is an awareness that a photographer is taking their picture a defining characteristic of a portrait, as opposed to a candid photo? Or does it have less to do with the subject and more to do with the artist?
Author: David began taking pictures at the age of 10 with a Kodak Ektralite. His second camera was a Vivitar point and shoot that he dropped into the sea of Galilea at 12-years-old. He got better at holding onto his cameras, and throughout high school he was rarely seen without his Nikon, but after enrolling in the University of Southern California's prestigious School of Cinematic Arts, you were more likely to find him with a super 8 or 16mm cinema camera. For the last two decades he's worked as a film and television writer, as well as a poet and short storywriter, but in recent years David's felt the irrepressible pull of his first and greatest love--photography. With his Fuji X-T2 he plans to push the limits of his equipment and his creativity in his search for new stories, stories that can only be found on the streets and on the faces of friends and strangers, focusing mostly on street photography and portraiture.
