Portraiture is complicated. It can represent the figure in front of the lens or a moment of recognition. Portraiture incorporates a spectrum of emotions and although not specific, can articulate impressions otherwise difficult to express. When I make a portrait, I watch to find something I know. Often it is a feeling left over from my past. It may be something I long for or a feeling that helps me connect. Making portraits helps to satisfy my curiosity and re-create what I did not understand in my early years, a reality hidden from me, that I was desperate to understand. As a child I learned not to believe what was in front of me. As an artist I need to see what’s there.

I saw Lydia Panas entry in the Taylor Wessing photography competition at the National Portrait Gallery and love how she captures people.
