Oh! I am so happy that you are back, Stickup. And with such dignity. These photos are magnificent. They demonstrate to us, I think, what having a culture looks like. Is reading a 'tweet' from from this or that celebrity (written by a ghastly ghost writer) really culture? Is it essence or a simulacrum of essence?
Wonderful portraits! I especially like the first one, and like that you used monochrome.
Wonderful indeed! Love this B&W series. Well done!
Superb work! Your choice of black and white adds a timeless quality to the pictures.
What a fine series. You have a great eye for portraits.
Great series of portraits! Very well captured!
A good portrait reveals something about the person beyond a superficial impression, portraying the person with meaning and depth. A great portrait gives us an idea of who the person is . . . these are great portraits.
Wonderful. Your photography moves beyond the editorial. You catch human dignity with your poetic eye.
Really nice portraits! Great faces on all them.
