The Difference Between Environmental Portrait And Portraiture

A portrait is a form of biography. Its purpose is to inform now and to record for history.

Arnold Newman

Let’s face it. We love taking photographs, and in many cases, these pictures include people. A lot of the images that we see depicting people fit comfortably within the genre of portraiture. Portraits have been with humanity throughout history and have left us not only with a huge number of images of faces, but also a legacy that shows who our ancestors were and who we are today.
