‘Intimate Portraits’ - at PhotoPlace Gallery by Claude Peschel Dutombe

"To my mind, the title 'Intimate Portraits' describes portraits that go beyond the surface and explore or reveal a deeper vision of the subject. This can be accomplished by showing an environmental context, capturing a telling expression, or, as in the case of the image that won the juror’s award, construction of a magical vision that does not exist outside the mind of the artist."
Joyce Tenneson -Juror’s Statement

Joyce Tenneson, a master in the field of portrait photography in her own rights, juried this group exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery.

A print from 'Ayutthaya Heritage' was selected for participation.

I am so happy that this work keeps on moving around representing the Cultural Heritage of the old Kingdom of Siam.

My beloved grandpa featured as picture of the day at Don't Take Pictures !

What a patient model he was. We had close to minus Celcius here and it took forever to position the mirror in the right place.
Note the three fishing lines? Yes, baby...no digital tricks in the old days, all handmade "magic"!
