Portraits of Others

The photograph allowed a new way of looking at ourselves. With the invention of the camera, photography became an essential tool in recording human behavior, customs, and lifestyles. A portrait is a story filled with clues and ideas about who a person is, what their status in society is, and sometimes even, a reflection of their self-worth.

Funding for this project was provided by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and a donation from PhotoWings.
