A philosopher once wrote “The face is the soul of the body”. While one might not agree with the implications of that statement, a person’s facial expressions are a reflection of their personality whether or not they are aware of it. As photographers, we are more or less successful at capturing the essence of a person in a single photo.

How to make a Submission
Submit your work Now
Invite a Photographer
It’s redundant to say that faces are pictured everywhere now that digital media and the internet put literally billions of images in front of us every day. And yet the oversaturation created by social media and selfies has made it, if anything, more difficult to create an image that goes to the essence of the subject. The existence of facial recognition software and the consequent loss of personal boundaries may contribute to a guardedness that makes emotional expression feel even more threatening. Thus the challenge to the photographer is to establish a rapport that creates openness. This can even apply in self portraiture.
The purpose of this exhibition is to reveal the emotion, intelligence, passion, character, and immense variety expressed in the human face. Whether your métier is the self portrait or photographing others, we’d like to see your work.
