photographic portraiture is one of the most compelling and popular of artistic genres. it is also a very complex and tentative area of artistic practice, covering an extensive ground from the singular portrait, to group portraits, to the self-portrait, placed in a variety of contexts, be it contemporary, historical, fictional or mythical. it is also used by contemporary artists to explore issues of identity – national, personal, sexual or social – often developing into a political statement or a psychological sketch.
