This solo episode with me, Luci Dumas, was inspired by a visit to an art museum in Indianapolis. There was an exhibit called “Portraiture and Identity”, celebrating the history of portraiture since the beginning of time.
I was moved to tears realizing that my/our profession has been a part of something so big and valuable. So important both in history, art, and to people personally.
I felt so much pride being a part of this legacy!
I felt humble knowing I was following in the footsteps of the world’s greatest painters, photographers, and sculptors!
And I felt so grateful to have been creating photographic art of people for over 41 years, as well as teaching and mentoring others in this profession, and producing objects that are treasures for so many people!
During this one-way conversation (from me to you) I…
- explore the rich tradition of portrait artists throughout history and how contemporary portrait photographers continue to be an integral part of this legacy…how modern portrait photographers are heirs to this long-standing tradition and draw inspiration from the masters who came before them.
- talk about 6 reasons why portraits are valuable
- and attempt to convey and celebrate the medium and our place in it as photographers.
After recording this episode, I thought of about a zillion other things I might have mentioned on this topic because it is such a big subject. But my main goal is just to connect the dots from the first humans to create a likeness of a person to today, and how photographers are just as important as any portrait artist using a variety of mediums. And to celebrate our contributions to the world!
