The Philosophy Of Portraiture

I mentioned a great video yesterday about an early landscape master. So how about another phenomenal video today, this time featuring a current portrait master? Nadav Kandar is as accomplished and talented a portraitist as has ever walked the earth, I'd say. Produced as a tie-in to this summer's London Olympics, this 13-minute video features not only examples of Kandar's work, and the photographer at work, but mostly it features him discussing his philosophy of portraiture and photography. It's an intellectual study of a way of making portraits, and it's fascinating. If you're into portraits, this is probably equivalent to a whole semester's worth of a college class on portraiture—all in just a few minutes of YouTube video. Thanks to The Strobist for sharing it.
