Why Portraits Matter

PRESENTED ON FEB 17, 2017
IN EL PASO @ VOL 15
"We should capture who we are at this moment."
 
In Why Portraits Matter from PechaKucha Night El Paso Vol. 15, David Parish shares his decision to create portraits in a world of selfies and why portraits matter.  Utilizing his background in psychology to connect with his subjects, David brings new life to the art of the portrait.  His studio portraiture takes on a painterly quality while revealing the humanity of his subjects through a classical eye.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 29th, 2017.
