Welcome to our nineteenth Portrait of an Artist Showcase! This Showcase complements our Portrait of an Artist Column edited by Ile Mont. Every two weeks Mont will review and curate work that has been submitted to our dedicated Flickr group. In addition, we will create 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.

Untitled – Louise Whiting
This is quite an extraordinary self portrait by Louise Whiting, where everything seems to have been completely handled in great detail: her pose, her expression, the settings, the lighting and finally, the black and white version, which is perfectly accomplished. It is feminine, mysterious and artistic. The impression of the flowers and sticks suggest is a mixed kind of emotions. Is she comfortable or not? Is she trapped or gently covered by them? What I liked more about this picture is the dramatic lighting which accentuates her enigmatical, though beautiful expression.
‘Rain Dance’ – Angie Lambert
Angie Lambert has synthesised in this picture a beautiful blurry portrait overwhelmed with nostalgic feelings with rainy weather that encompasses the mood of a heartfelt and paused dance. The tonality of the image is gorgeous and matches the mood and the body language of the subject that it evokes. As I observe it more, the textures of her dress and the lines of her body appear to be fading away in a mysterious way. Still, her bare feet stand close together in the ground, reaffirming this beautiful presence.
