Mobile Photography – Portrait of an Artist ‘The Magical Self’ Challenge Results Showcase

We are delighted to publish our fifthteenth Portrait of an Artist Challenge Results Showcase. Since there not an exact definition for the concept of magic, the concept remains a beautiful mystery. If the magic is in or out ourselves, only our own lives will show us. Nevertheless, the power of the magical self is beautiful. Here are the best submissions of our challenge.

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.

Please join our Facebook group for information sharing/discussions (link here)

Please upload your portraiture images to our Flickr Group for fortnightly showcase submissions (link here)

Many congratulations to the following artists featured this time:  Lorenka Campos, Cecilia Sao Thiago, Susan Rennie and Catherine Caddigan. Your images are amazing and really let your magic shine!
