Portraiture by Paul Duane


The word ‘photography’ literally means “Light (photo) Writing (graphy). Each photograph is a carefully worded essay or poem about my subject. 

When composing a photograph, the most important question is, “What is this a picture of?”  The language of black and white photography is my favorite language to answer in. 

By stripping away all  unnecessary visual information, we reveal the heart of the matter: human emotion.  By freezing time, we receive the gift of photography: the ability to contemplate the ordinary in an extraordinary way.
