A window into the soul as the cliché goes, and yet there’s some truth in the power of a portrait – from the history of the studio sitting to the rise of the selfie, the best portraits give a glimpse into another life, a connection formed across distance, cultures and ages.
Show us faces – individuals or groups, the iconic or the unknown – that celebrate diversity, creativity, honesty and self-expression. Studio portraiture, candid street shots, self-portraits, conceptual and fine art all welcome. With seven billion faces to choose from, show us the ones that matter.
