John Lennon

The cropping of this John Lennon portrait adds a certain drama to it. Getting right into the face makes the overall effect more powerful.


I like this picture of Mary as she was standing over someone having a conversation and while I was snapping away.
I used charcoal here as I was interested in the shapes Mary's hair made and wanted to capture the casualness of the moment also. Even though its a profile the essence of the individual has been captured in a moment.
