Gregory Heisler- Portrait Photography

Gregory Heisler is a well known portrait photographer who has worked with many prominent people of our time. He is also known his stunning portraits that can often be seen on magazine covers such as Time. I chose this photographs because it encapsulate the essence of most of Heisler portraits. This portrait is very vivid and it pops out of the dark. I also feel like his subject has a lot of character. There's a lot of details on his skin and hands. There's also the head to hands ratio, which make the photo more interesting to look at. His hands almost seem bigger than his head. he uses the subjects hand to rest his head looking almost like an egg. the photograph is also black and white which takes away any other color distraction that may have been in the frame.
