When does a photo portrait cross the boundaries of traditional portraiture to become art for the sake of art?
Panopticon Gallery in Boston has curated a group exhibition of work that challenges the definition of portraiture by photographers and artists Fritz Liedtke, Andrea Raynor, Holly Lynton, Samuel Quinn, Wendy Paton, KK DePaul, Marybeth Rothman, Zia Ayub, Stephen Sheffield, Hans Hiltermann, Charlotte Niel, Douglas Prince, Ellen Carey and others.
We're pleased to know that three of the artists included in the show were discovered at Lens Culture FotoFest Paris in 2011.
