07/11/2005: "Removed"

55chrisclose (134k image)

Photographer Dan Winters was asked if when photographing his subject (celebrities) if he felt he had an obligation to portray them in a flattering light...

His answer? "I wouldn't say that I feel an obligation. Instead, I feel like I try to honor them as individuals. I try to make an image that's interesting and compelling and relatively representational of what the individual looks like. I think that when someone sits for a portrait they're allowing you to make a physical object out of their physical representation. I don't think I go out of my way to be overly flattering. But I do try to be true to the subject."

Dan Winters is one of my favorite photographers in the world today. I aspire to be half the artist that he is.

I really wonder how many photos you take in order the find the "one"

But this one really captures something quite stunning
