Rae Barnes

Wedding and portrait photography is, next to advertisement, is the photography that I have the hardest time respecting.  Not that I don’t think it is an art, but I find that wedding and portrait photography is just too popular. Everyone does it. However, not ever portrait photographer cuts off the heads of their subjects. The fact that Rae was able to show the emotion and connection of this family through simple gesture of their bodies without using their faces is a crucial element to making this picture beautiful. It is far too easy to lean on the expressions on people faces to portray emotion, but a photographer who can show both emotion and relations without the use of the head is truly an artist to be admired.
