Powerful Portraits Of The Human Race

By Admin,On 13 Jan,2015
Portrait photography and photojournalism are two potentially intense and powerful art forms that don't always get the recognition they deserve,we thought we should show you some of the most powerful and diverse portraits of people around the world that we've ever seen.
Both the faces of the people in these photos and their contexts speak volumes about the people pictured and the worlds they live in. Some can be unimaginably and even horrifically different from ours, while other once-exotic worlds seem to grow closer and more interconnected with our own. Though they are only photos, looking into their eyes can still give us a feeling of connection.
