Portraiture Now: Feature Photography

The National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., has a current exhibit called Portraiture Now: Feature Photography.  It will be up through September 27, so I hope to see it this spring or summer.  

The show highlights the work of six photographers whose work has been featured in popular publications such as The New Yorker, while offering a variety of perspectives on how we see ourselves today.

Below are two photographs from the exhibit.  The first one is by Alec Soth, and the second is by Steve Pyke.




Here is another image I found by Steve Pyke of a cyberpunk.  It is wildly different from the above image, aside from being a black and white photographic portrait.  I find the contrast between the two images intriguing.
