Take away all the silly props, put away all the flamboyant clothing and create a portrait, a snapshot of a person that will stay with us forever. Dan Winters is a famous photographer who illuminates his subjects to reveal something most of us would often miss. You can read more about his work and his inspirations at the PDN Gallery website
. Here are a few of my favorite quotes.
"I try to make an image that's interesting and compelling and relatively representational of what the individual looks like. I think that when someone sits for a portrait theyr'e allowing you to make a physical object out of their physical representation. I don't think I go out of my way to be overly flattering. But I do try to be true to the subject."
"For me, it's about walking around in life with the intent of capturing moments."
“I get up every day and that’s what I do, make photographs, whether I’m being paid to or not. I love it, love it, love it.”
