The Beautiful Winning Images of AAP Magazine #24 Portrait

We’re delighted to reveal the names of the 25 talented photographers who won AAP Magazine #24: Portrait.

The most difficult thing for me is a portrait. You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt.

Henry Cartier-Bresson

The most common definition of portrait photography: from identifying, to the most sensitive approach of capturing emotions, (including its ability to heighten the model or to educate the viewer) portrait photography is strengthened by a wide variety of forms and practices. It transcends the posed studio shots or the common family portraits to become a genre in its own right that allows photographers to express their full creativity.

Describe, reveal, embellish, question, disturb… a portrait can inspire many different reactions. But if there are indeed a thousand faces to a photograph, we could only showcase some of them, and this new edition of AAP Magazine focuses on the vision of 25 photographers from 14 different countries and 4 continents!.

Each one of them reveals their personal narrative and different approach to the Portrait Photography.
