Lesson In Portraiture... (keep it simple)

I've kept this photo (by the fabulous Zoe Strauss) as wallpaper for a couple of weeks now just to remind me how very simple, and powerful, a good photograph can be. And let's face it- it's about as basic as basic can get. And yet, when was the last time Annie Leibovitz and all her minions (and millions) collaborated on any portrait anywhere near as good?

Zoe is a huge inspiration to me. Her work is amazing.
