Welcome to our third Portrait of an Artist Showcase! This Showcase complements our Portrait of an Artist Column edited by Jennifer Bracewell. Every two weeks Jennifer will review and curate work that has been submitted to our dedicated Flickr group. In addition, to creating 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.
We hope you enjoy this weeks’ showcase…

Portrait of a Synesthete by Damian De Souza
Damian De Souza is an incredible talent. I recently discovered his work on Flickr. He’s a brilliant surreal portraitist, combining seemingly disparate items into collages to make compelling pieces. Here’s a prime example.
Amphitrite by Tatiana Andri
This ethereally beautiful underwater scene stopped me in my tracks. I love the use of texture in this piece.
Collapse by Jeffrey Simpson
I love this gorgeous image by Jeffrey Simpson. The light is impeccable. The use of negative space is brilliant.
