AAP Magazine #17 Portrait competition 2nd Place Winner is Erberto Zani

Portraits have never ceased to inspire photographers since the invention of photography in 1839 but it was at first a mere replica of the paintings’ aesthetics for the sole privilege of the upper class.
 
Since then, portraits have become an ordinary object present in every household but it also became a photographic genre at the crossroads of the artist’s sensibility and technical approach. Portrait photography is both a celebration of the subject and an art in itself and all the submitted worked proved just that.
