Portraiture shortlist and finalists On Screen

Throughout time the best portraits have revealed qualities of the sitter. Studio, candid, fine art or conceptual, portraits taken in many different approaches were embraced. Be it beauty, power, confidence – or perhaps a secretive quality – a good portrait invites the viewer to gain a deeper understanding of the person being photographed. Self portraits were also welcomed.
