Is art of portraiture a dying one? While we’re constantly photographing and constantly photographed, while we have a camera (or three) on our person at any given time, what it actually means is that we’re all about capturing moments and memories and whatever’s happening right now, rather than taking portraits in sittings in a purposeful way. The modern portrait is one that’s taken at an event or on the street, a record not of ourselves or our families but of where we are and what we’re wearing.
So that art of traditional portraiture is just that, an art, and one that doesn’t get so much use these days – so it’s refreshing to be able to bring you this portrait by Pierre Dal Corso of French actress Vahina Giocante, simple, beautiful, and traditional bar for its unique post-processing effects that give it a very modern edge.
