There are a couple determining factors that led to these portraits. One day I was checking out photography websites and I came across Joshua Black Wilkins work. In his testimonials someone wrote “Amazing organic portraits….somehow he always manages to capture the soul- I don’t feel like I’m looking at a photograph when I look at these photos- I feel like I’m sitting right across from the subjects at a diner or on the street.” If that’s not what a portrait […]
