Today's feature set of portraits that catch ordinary people, who aren't necessarily comfortable in front of the camera, in an intriguing shot comes from photographer Clare Samuel. She is currently completing her Master of Fine Arts degree at Concordia University in Montreal.
Set apart from all the work I’ve featured in this topic before, Clare’s work conveys her background in art and that thoughtful exploration of time and place and, particularly, how people are placed within that environment. My favorite series “It is Still” shown above struck me when looking for new portrait ideas. It seemed candid but certain at the same time. I have never seen a shot, which she describes as “taken at the wrong time,” look more intriguing.
