WORK ON PORTRAITS
BY
ION

"Work on Portraits, is my first complete photographic work. It consists
of 15 images of persons of different ages, races and cultures. The link that binds all these persons together is nature. The faces acquire a very specific connection with their backgrounds, having a constant dialogue with them."
