|Fascade of the San Francisco Museum of African Diaspora|
A quick walk around the corner (that same day) to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art gave us the opportunity to check out the provocative, if not sometimes disturbing photographs of Francesca Woodman. The exhibit is no longer at SFMoMA but the PBS Independent Lens series recently aired a documentary on the artist and her family.
|Timothy Greenfield-Sanders exchanges a word with former |
photographic subject, Governor Deval Patrick.
The Governor's portrait is just behind Greenfield-Sanders (ugh!)
A good portrait is more than just an individual posing for the camera. It can convey the interesting aspects of a face. The right expression may make you consider, "what was going on just before the shutter opened?" And, of course, the eyes can really draw you in and force you to ask that question, "What's the story behind this face?"
