The Art of Photographing Human Body Parts in Close-Up

Photographic portraits are meant to emphasize a person’s face features, to give an overview of how they look like and “freeze” their appearance as the years go by. Creativity unleashed portrays not only faces and silhouettes, but also body parts, like lips, eyes, mouths, feet and other expressive parts of the human body. This showcase proves in 50 photos that close-up portraits can be magnificent, can have a meaning and a strong message. They can imply which sex they belong to, the age of the owner, social condition, mood, desires and a lot of other things. Body parts portraits can reveal many more details than one would be tempted to believe!

    Artists have been painting, drawing, sculpting, etching and photographing the human form for thousands of years, and it remains a most classic theme in art. The human body is one of the most beautiful forms in nature. Maybe we just never tire of depicting and looking at ourselves?
