I love a face with character. When we erase age we eliminate all that it took to get us this far.


Blogger Baras said ... (1:38 PM) :

Blogger Beverly. said ... (1:42 PM) : 

It's a weathered face of experience, perception and happiness; it's a beautiful face.

I love your pictures of 'real people' (the others are real, too, but you know what I mean...). My first photo book was Richard Avedon's 'In the American West'. Although he is relaxed and smiling this picture remind me of their intensity.

I love this piece
there's nothing more beautiful than a face which shows age, and I think the black and White of this really adds to the depth:)

Blogger huntingforair said ... (5:48 PM) :

Personally, I love looking at old people like antique tapestries/textiles.
Thank you.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:28 PM) : 

Is this a reworking of the same photo?
I remember one you posted of him before. Anyhow I like. It was one of my favorite pictures. :)

Beautiful portrait.


Blogger jasperinspiration said ... (12:04 AM) : 

There's nothing more appealing than an online picture of someone that will most likely never see it on the internet.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 AM) : 

This is beautiful! But can you dodge the eyes a little? I would love to see a little more detail there.


Blogger mos atelier said ... (1:08 AM) : 

Bravo. Very special photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:32 AM) : 

No need to parrot what all others are raving about already... Just want to add that you really have become such an influence on so many people-- casual and artistic snappers alike with your simple, unpretentious and dynamic portraits; aristocrats, socialites, fashion royalties, art school kids, eccentrics, and this gentleman, are all equally regal and beautiful. It's all about the individual's style.

Thanks for always sharing.



Blogger Vinda Sonata said ... (2:02 AM) : 

this photograph is seriously outstanding!! so perfectly shot, i may say. i wish i could do photography just like you....
thanks for sharing!

The face of a man straight out of a Hemingway novel.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 AM) : 

this is how an "inner glow" looks like. lovely.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (4:53 AM) : 

Your blog is about to become a very interesting one. I was actually kind of bored lately; all your pictures depict very good stylished people...all very well taken. And with this picture, you're going to a new direction, a new level. Keep up the very good work.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:16 AM) : 

Lovely face :)

Great! Real people again!

Love the photo. Great presence!

Mr. Schuman.

Deeply admire the photography of a person in their clothes, not clothes on a person.



Blogger Gary K. said ... (8:52 AM) : 

I love the small-gingham shirt.

it's beautiful. refreshing.

He has this amazing sense of joy to his expression.

Love this! Tells more than a thousand words!



Blogger Mel said ... (4:18 AM) : 

I love this shot. It is beautiful. Somehow his smile has a hot-cappucino-on-a-rainy-Sunday-morning feeling to it


Anonymous Clarissa H said ... (10:09 AM) : 

Ditto on the Hemingway comment; I also love how you've brought out the texture of his beard. The salt & pepper contrast is striking!


Anonymous rio555 said ... (6:00 PM) : 

this picture doesn't need many words to express its beauty.

this is what i call a true smile. =]

What a charismatic face! he seems to get wiser and more interesting as he ages. love the hat and shirt!


Blogger Haley said ... (6:07 PM) : 

Great face-porcupine scruff! Reminds me a bit of the style of chiaroscuro in Strand's images you posted from the Hebrides. Amazing how expressive his eyes are, without even showing the whites.

The expression is everything, and the way you've captured it (again! I loved that photograph of him you took yonks ago) is wonderful.

Blogger Nicki said ... (2:08 PM) : 

I love that you've been highlighting people more and more in your photos. The portraits are a great glimpse into more than just their attire -- I love it. Thanks!


Blogger Ann said ... (7:49 PM) : 

I was just looking at your winter archives and noticed that this isn't the first time you've featured this face. He's gorgeous! So real...


Blogger ALIOMI said ... (12:07 AM) : 

he has such character. One of the most captivating faces you've posted thus far--bravo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:32 AM) : 

Beautiful photo. The way you captured and conveyed depths and textures (the crosshatched wrinkles near his eyes, the bristle of the beard, the ribbing of the jacket collar, even the weave of the fabric of the cap) is astonishing... it draws the eye in and echoes the idea that this man has depths of experience and heart.


Blogger Emily and Daniel said ... (2:24 PM) : 

This photo is incredible. He looks so joyful and serene at the same time. The details in this are stunning.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:57 PM) : 

He’s face is the map of life. Very suggestive


Blogger ModeKarussell said ... (3:15 PM) : 

you've everything said :) and you are all right, he is such a kind of cute.


Anonymous John Cay said ... (2:00 AM) : 

It is a wonderful picture actually, it's so natural and strong character. However the tone is too dark maybe you could add some more lighting.
