As much as I respect the portraiture genre within photography, it just isn’t my thing. Perhaps I am not confident enough sifting the very good from the good? Nevertheless, I was really taken by Meera Margaret Singh‘s work – there is something very gripping about her series Harbinger. One of the subjects is her mother, others are strangers.
“Previously when I had worked with strangers, the awkwardness sometimes fueled the work. Now I’m being a bit more discriminate about whom I photograph and at what stage in our encounter.” (Source: Nymphoto interview, 04/02/09)
