Portraiture

The portriat ‘is a place where faces can easily become masks and where photography is translated as a complex theatrical idiom’, (Christopher Pinney 1997:15) where a person can represent idealized exteriors for future generations to admire. The portrait also intertwines self-representation, where the subject of the portrait wants to be seen in a certain way. Philosophers Danto (cit. Walden 2008:12) argues, historically man placed pronounced value on appearance, and the desired projection it to others.
