I am curating a photographic portrait show for


Come closer. Strip away the distractions, fill the frame. We want to see your most revealing portraits. Vulnerable or intense, the composition is so tight that the entire head cannot be seen. Emotion lives within the confines of your face. Let's remove all distractions. Remove the world, the body, our outfits, and differences and display photographs composed of nothing but the face or a fraction thereof.

We are working with Pamela Viola to curate an exhibition entitled "Closer." The show will include the work of a group of 5 photographers depicting the impact of macro compositions on portraits.
