Abstract

A discussion is undertaken of modern ideas on the nature of appearance and reality, and how these ideas relate to photography, especially portraiture.

An examination is made of some portrait photographers (August Sander, Richard Avedon, Arnold Newman, Diane Arbus) to trace the evolution of my own approach, which is further related to some movements in art history (Romanticism, Surrealism) and to twentieth century literature (Virginia Woolf).
