Old photo. Just liked the fun angle making it seem like the smoke-stack was never-ending. Somewhere in downtown Toronto, Ontario.
Fun Celebrity Portraits by Michael Lewis
“Michael Lewis has a job that many aspiring photographers would envy. He gets to meet up with some of our favorite funny celebrities like Tina Fey and Jack Black to take their portraits. It’s clear that Lewis puts a lot of thought into the settings for each subject, as he places them in environments that feel just right.
As expected, some celebrities seem to have more fun than others like Tina Fey who appears to be writing graffiti on the wall of the men’s bathroom. Others prefer a more classic portrait, like the iconic World’s Most Interesting Man, with his trademark cigar and drink in hand.”

Something I shot way back. Just always liked the interaction between the street performer and the kid. Not often does something like this happen. That kid had some courage to reach out and bug him too. Good on him. This was taken in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Found this Moscow based photographer Mercuro B. Cotto a while back as I was checking out My Modern Metropolis. Really love the colours and tones and emotion in the first photo. The colours and mood as well as location of the second photo really pop. Love both. Check out more of his work at http://mecurobcotto.com All images are Copyright © Mercuro B. Cotto
Photographer Martin Schoeller did a series on identical twins that was featured in National Geographic Magazine in January 2012. ‘They have the same piercing eyes. The same color hair. One may be shy, while the other loves meeting new people. Discovering why identical twins differ—despite having the same DNA—could reveal a great deal about all of us.’ says Schoeller.
Sweet photo-set. Love the simplicity but the subtle differences in each individual even if they are identical twins. Very well lit and a personal, almost a reach-out and touch kinda feeling to these shots.

Mmm simple yet beautiful black and white portraits.
Photographer Gavin Bond recently shot these gorgeous black and white photos for Newsweek magazine’s Oscar Roundtable. Each photo is utterly simple yet captures each of the actors personality and characteristics so well. I am a huge sucker for portraits and these are awesome.
