Welcome to our twenty fourth Portrait of an Artist Showcase! This Showcase complements our Portrait of an Artist Column edited by myself. Every few weeks I review and curate work that has been submitted to our dedicated Flickr group. In addition, Joanne Carter creates a showcase video which features a sampling of submitted work, we will also highlight a few images that have caught our attention… offering some thoughtful commentary about technique, composition and subject matter.
If you are not a member of our Facebook group… we highly recommend that you join us! This is our space for sharing newsworthy information and conducting discussions (what, when, where, why and how) regarding mobile portraiture and portraiture in general.

Fascinating and compelling image that seduces the viewer to stare and try to discern its magic. Is it about, memories, dreams or nightmares? We can only fantasise about it but the impression it brings is very powerful. Built upon a very significant concept, exquisitely developed through all its storytelling elements, its lighting and its beautiful black and white, the complexity and beauty of Ade’s work make it an unforgettable one.

This very eye catching portrait from Tuba stands out for its poetry and romanticism. It talks to me about nostalgia, distance, dreams and love. I love the elements she chose for this elegant, innovative and exquisite composition. The colours and the fine and original edit add for an excellent story telling piece that invites our imagination to guess the story.
