From the book 50 Portrait Lighting Techniques for Pictures That Sell by John Hart, 1995.  I find portrait art to be infinitely fascinating.  Hart’s book, apart from introducing the beginning photographer to lighting techniques, is an excellent journey to the mid 1990’s.

    That first guy looks like he’s standing in front of a closet that contains a dead body.

    It’s like a portrait of the moment his career as a sexual predator escalated… um, I watch a lot of true crime tv shows.. but if you do too, you know I’m not wrong.

    The phrase ‘sexual predator’ does come to mind right away…
    Maybe it’s the supernaturally creepy smile in the top left quadrant, the cold distant stares on the right side or the forced naturalism in the bottom left…

    Yes, that series in particular caught my eye, but for a different reason. It reminds me so much of this kid I sat next to in Algebra II. Spitting image. His yearbook quote was “Hakuna Matata”.
