Dan Winters Takes Timeless Celebrity Portraits (16 Favorites)

Take away all the silly props, put away all the flamboyant clothing and create a portrait, a snapshot of a person that will stay with us forever. Dan Winters is a famous photographer who illuminates his subjects to reveal something most of us would often miss. You can read more about his work and his inspirations at the PDN Gallery website. Here are a few of my favorite quotes. “I try to make an image that's interesting and compelling and relatively representational of what the individual looks like. I think that when someone sits for a portrait theyr'e allowing you to make a physical object out of their physical representation. I don't think I go out of my way to be overly flattering. But I do try to be true to the subject.” “For me, it's about walking around in life with the intent of capturing moments.” “I get up every day and that's what I do, make photographs, whether I'm being paid to or not. I love it, love it, love it.”
