COLUMNS,  Portrait of an Artist

Mobile Photography – Portrait of an Artist – Twentieth Video Showcase – TheAppWhisperer

Welcome to our twentieth 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.

‘Merge’ – Riel Noir

I just love how powerful this image by Riel Noir is in composition, style and color. It’s seductiveness and refinement, the predominance of the gold and the graphic elements as well as the somewhat antique and very seductive look of the model, inevitably evoke the works of Gustav Klimt, where the female body is the main character, and sexuality and erotism are the theme that surround it.

‘Yield’ – Patricia Januszkiewicz

Quite an intriguing character that Patricia Januszkiewicz presents us in this image: An ambivalent presence or maybe two different characters, apparently trapped between the real and the ethereal, bounded together though by an imminent artefact made out of mingled time and emotions where the title of this piece dwells.
