April 15, 2011 · Published by Jeff Curto

Jeff Curto takes a conceptual approach to the history of photography, looking at 19th, 20th, and some 21st century portraits to discuss what makes a good portrait photograph. He also attempts to draw parallels with the words and ideas of the Transcendentalist thinkers and writers Emerson and Thoreau.
