raw physiognomy


as I said the last time, I intend to post some of my favorites photos from the Solo Photo Book Month, that is still available for everyone to see and comment at
http://www.sofobomo.org/2009/books/skinnydipping/AfterSun/
this is the first one of the selected photos..

"A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth."
Richard Avedon [american photographer. 1923 - 2004]

I got lucky with finding this one as it cycled through your images on the sidebar. He has a face that begs to be photographed and you've done an exceptional job. I firmly believe in physiognomy because I'm a physiognomer. It's not a blessing; it's a curse.
