What makes a portrait?

Every photographer asks themselves this… Not just once, but every single time they are trying to capture the essence or the story in someone. I have to admit, perhaps in these examples I had a cheat. I happened to know my ‘subject’ very well. And yet, in taking these portraits there was still something new to capture, and a new angle to see. I love that about photographs, and I love that about people. Even those you love the best.
