Sometimes there's something about an image that makes you want to stare at it for hours. We love kids' portraits that aren't predictable, and this summer portrait is all the better for the intensity of her stare and lack of smile. Not that we are opposed to smiling, happy kids-we are not! But they often convey a bit of artifice. Our favorite portraits evoke something more.
I fell in love with photography the minute I went into a darkroom and saw an image appear in a tray of liquid. But that was in the late 1970’s and for the most part images don’t appear in trays of liquid anymore. They come out of computers, and Epson printers, iPhones, and Facebook pages. Photography is undergoing a sea change, a fundamental shift so great that it brings to mind the transition from horse to Model-T.
At Matt Mendelsohn Photography we stick with the basics. Back to focusing on photographs that matter, back to prints that will last, and back to looking at photography as a legacy we leave to our children.
